Sycamore Creek Charter School

$11,845 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 37 months

It's been 3 years already and I'm still in the thick of it. When I joined this wonderful team I was expecting, and now I have an almost 3 year old daughter in addition to a, now 7 year old, son.  My dream is for them and other children to have access to educational choice. Our choice as well as so many others in the community is for a school Guided by the Core Principals of Public Waldorf Education.

Our team submitted our latest and greatest version of our petition for a public, tuition free, charter school to Ocean View School District. We're anticipating our upcoming public hearing (date to be confirmed for either 10/16 or 11/13). We need your support to show the district that ours is a sought after educational model!

So many have been generous with time, help and monetary support. The start up costs are significant. We have held dine-outs and many other fundraisers in the past. Currently we are holding regular rummage sales which have been a huge help in mitigating the costs. Our specializing law firm Young, Minney & Corr as well as our back of house provider Ed Tec have been immensely supportive and patient as we gather funds. We are also a registered developer with the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA). Their support is invaluable. While our board and even officers are unpaid volunteers we do need to pay these wonderful businesses.

Any amount helps! Please give what you can and help us to cross the finish line so we can open in 2019! Don't forget to come to our public hearing and wear green for SCCCS!

Let's stand together to request a public Waldorf option that is tuition-free in Northern Orange County. How many of us are on wait lists or unable to drive to far away schools, or unable to afford the high cost of tuition? This is our opportunity to bring something so important, so necessary, so desired for so many. Add your name to the chorus, and come wearing green in solidarity. A few hours out of your day could have an impact as to whether or not the school is authorized. If you want this option for your family then make sure and attend February 22nd at 10:15am. Orange County Department of Education, 200 Kalmus Dr, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. See you there.

Dear SCCCS Supporters:

Please consider making a year-end donation to Sycamore Creek Community Charter School. We are a non-profit and your donation is 100% tax deductible. Our curriculum is guided by the Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education, focusing on the healthy growth of the whole child throughout each stage of development. SCCCS is the only initiative of its kind in North Orange County and is open to all residents of California.

Unfortunately, Ocean View School District denied our first initiative to open SCCCS. Regardless, we are prepared and determined to move forward. Our advocates, CCSA, and supporters are ready to stand with us as we move through the appeal process with the Orange County School Board. We ask that you support us in any way you can.

You can support us in the following ways:
*Financial Donations here through gofundme.
*Attend county board meetings during our appeal process, details to come.
*Share our initiative with anyone who would be interested in supporting SCCCS.
Your year-end donation will greatly help us with the start up costs of Sycamore Creek and the legal fees that will be required to get our school approved and open for the 2017/2018 school year. Every dollar helps and will be used efficiently and wisely.

Thank you so much for your support,

The Founders of SCCCS

Hello fellow SCCCS supporters! We have been continuing to make progress over the summer and have submitted our petition for approval. We are preparing for our Ocean View School Board public hearing on November 1st. Meanwhile we have continued our partnership with CCSA, and Alliance for Public Waldorf Education. As you can imagine a lot of leg work has gone into our endeavor. Our talented team of founders and volunteers has put in countless hours and we've also hired the premier California charter school specializing group of attorneys and back-of-house support.

If you are able to donate it would help to close the gap on some of the ongoing costs for these outside services. Also please share our story on any social media platforms you may use. And don't forget to check out our website for updates and additions:

Warmly, Amy Green-Bosinoff
