Jefferson RISE Charter School is a newly approved 6-12 charter school for Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. We are open-enrollment (no admissions test) and tuition-free.
In September, we heard that our start-up funding was completely reallocated leaving us penniless. Because we are a public school, we will have state and local funding once we open in August of 2015. We raised enough to cover our operating costs through the winter, but without additional funding, we will not be able to open as planned.
We have spent the last year building support in our community to found Jefferson RISE. Countless parents, grandparents, and community members have shared their stories with us, and we in turn promised them a great school. Please help us keep our promise to families like the Chapmans (pictured), who need and want a college preparatory 6-12 charter school in their neighborhood.
