Resilience Charter School is thrilled to announce our collaborative partnership with The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding (RPCP)! With the vision of becoming a hub for professional development in Social and Emotional Learning in Alachua County Schools, we will work together to infuse nonviolent communication, conflict resolution, peer mediation, and restorative justice into the culture of Resilience Charter School. RPCP has joined our Advisory Board, and will help us to create an Organizational and Discipline Plan that inspires peacebuilding and social justice from the very heart of our organization. We will work together to implement RPCP's curriculum for adolescents, as well as train teachers, staff, mentors, and students in the practices of peacebuilding. The parallels between RCPC's and Resilience Charter School's missions, unite us in a collaborative partnership to build resilient, innovative, and peaceful communities. Please check out their website and explore the crucial work they are doing!
We are please to announce that Resilience Charter School is advancing on its planned opening date of Fall 2016! Everything is going really well!
With all of the positive feedback we've heard from you - our community - The Resilience Charter School is on its way to completion!
We have filed our Articles of Incorporation with the State of Florida. We are in the process of writing our application for Non-profit, 501c3 status. We have reviewed several properties in order to find the perfect mix of available space, room to grow, and location, location, Location!
Mainly, though, the State Charter School application is about two-thirds done! We are so excited about our eduction plan. Our Phoenixes will have amazing opportunities for project-based learning, alternative assessment, individual learning plans, and real-world problem solving! As we design our new campus, we are taking into consideration small group spaces in many configurations - like small and mid-size seating areas, small conference areas, and tempting outdoor spaces!
Check back with us often to see what we're up to. Please, also, leave us some comments. We love to hear from you!
