You Can Help NC’s Charter Schools
Legislation that could give a significant boost to North Carolina charter schools has been introduced in the General Assembly. House Bill 219, the Charter School Omnibus, would make various changes to the laws affecting charter schools. Among the most significant: It would ensure that students at public charter schools and public district schools receive equal funding.
Currently, N.C. charter school students receive 37% less local funding than district school students. If you agree that it’s time to end this disparity, we encourage you to reach out to your House or Senate member to share your views. Find your Legislators here.

Safety First, Always
Since The Roger Bacon Academy’s founding in 1999, the safety of our students and staff has been the top priority. Safety is a shared responsibility. The buildings and grounds must meet regulatory standards, and the staff and students must observe safe practices in their conduct and set examples for all to follow.
Last month, all four CCS-America campuses and The RBA corporate office received the NCDOL OSHA Award for having a safe place for employees to work. To receive this award, an organization must maintain an incidence rate at least 50% below the average for its industry group.
Thank you to all of our staff for continuing to work hard and keep our sites safe for all!
