In July we found out that, for a second time, Patriot qualifies for a unique grant opportunity for select charter schools. The construction grant is only available to schools who were rated as “high performing” on their 2018-2019 school report card. Of the 373 charter schools in the state of Ohio, only 37 of those earned the designation of academically “high performing.” We are 1 of only 9 schools who have qualified for this grant 2x’s, which puts us in the top 2% of all charter schools!
In the 8 weeks we had to complete the grant, we met with Keiser Design Group and Elevated Integrity design to create an innovative instructional learning space and compile our 240 page grant application. If accepted, a $6.5M, 24,000 sq ft east wing will be added to the current building at the end of the elementary hallway, giving us more space to better serve our students.
While we won't know until December if our application is approved, we are proud of our students, parents, teachers, and staff for their dedication and commitment to the success of our students. Together we will continue to strive for the amazing, the unusual and the uncommon!
