In June Ross Montessori School, a public charter school serving the Roaring Fork Valley was approved for an $11.8 million BEST grant (Building Excellent Schools Today), a program of the Colorado Department of Education. In order to receive the grant the school must raise $1 million in matching funds by November 6, 2012. If we do not meet the deadline we will forfeit the grant. Please support our campaign to MEET THE MATCH and GET THE BEST.
250 RMS students currently attend school in dilapidated, leased modular buildings on a site zoned for industry. In spite of this, Ross Montessori School has delivered some of the Roaring Fork Valley’s highest scores on the CSAP and TCAP standardized tests. 17% of the students qualify for free and reduced lunch and 28% come from minority families.
Every dollar raised will be matched by 12 more dollars if the school meets the total goal of $1 million by November 6. Please give generously and help a wonderful group of deserving teachers and students realize their dream!
