Charter School Funding in Alabama
Charter schools in Alabama receive the same amount of state Foundation Program funding per student that would have been allocated to the local school system where the student resides. Additionally, charter schools receive the same local tax revenue up to the per-student portion of the state-required Foundation Program local match for the school system where the student resides. Funds that are earmarked, pledged, or legally restricted are excluded by the local system when determining the local match.
The Alabama State Department of Education provides detailed guidance on funding for charter schools, which can be found at the link below. The state also maintains year-to-year reports detailing revenue and expenditures for each local educational agency, which can provide insight into projected funding.
