After the long summer, we all welcome cooler temperatures at NYOS. The whitetop, field and playground don’t feel quite so stifling now that autumn has arrived.
 
We celebrated a true legislative win for charter schools this summer. In August, the Texas legislature passed House Bill 21. The school finance bill included up to $60 million for charter school facilities financing - for the FIRST TIME EVER!! We expect it will make up about $150 of the $1,400 difference that currently exists between funding for a NYOS student versus funding for an AISD student. The funding is available starting in the 2018-2019 school year. NYOS can use the funds to pay rent, utilities and loan payments for land and buildings.
