Santa Fe ISD launched an after-school STREAM program which has enabled SFISD students to visit with mentors from an array of careers and begin their exposure to potential career pathways. The STREAM program has positively impacted the children of SFISD by giving them access to supportive members of the community. They can visualize themselves in positions of responsibility and authority, which makes learning more rewarding.
Charter schools are free due to public, taxpayer dollars that are taken from traditional public schools when a child enrolls in the charter school. Unlike a traditional public school, charter schools are also funded by private companies, individuals, and interests. They are managed by a private entity vs a community elected board where the public has input. And their boards are appointed vs elected. This means that charter board members can have a financial interest in the success of the schools.
