They make in depth, annual reports to the Pennsylvania Department of Education. In Pennsylvania, charter schools are a public school alternative to the traditional, local public schools. Students may seek admission to a local charter school. The Commonwealth bases the funding for charter schools on the principle that the state’s subsidies should follow the students, regardless of whether they choose to attend traditional public schools or charter schools. The Charter School Law also requires that charter schools bill each sending school district on a monthly basis for students attending the charter school. The Harrisburg School District tuition rate was $9,538 in 2014. In 2013, the tuition rate was $10,922.59. Additionally, when the local school district provides transportation to its students it must also provide transportation at no costs to charter school students, when the receiving school is within 10 miles of the District's borders. Pennsylvania charter schools have the same academic accountability as traditional public schools and must give the PSSAs and Keystone Exams to their pupils each year, working to achieve Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status. The goal is for 100% of the pupils to be reading on grade level and demonstrate on grade level math skills. According to Pennsylvania Charter School law, if more students apply to attend than there are open slots available, Charter Schools are required to use a random lottery system to select new incoming students. According to the Charter School law, siblings (brothers and sisters), and children of individuals who help establish a charter school, are granted an “admissions preference". Students residing in the Harrisburg School District are selected first, according to the number of slots available for Harrisburg students. If there is space available for more students, seats will be declared open for out-of-District students. The Capital Area Intermediate Unit IU15 provides the school with a wide variety of services like specialized education for disabled students and hearing, speech and visual disability services and professional development for staff and faculty.
