San Tan Charter School is committed to keeping our students safe. Since the beginning of this year, we’ve been seeking out ways to make our campus more secure. To accomplish this, we are starting a campaign to raise funds to install security systems on both the Power and Recker campuses for the 2018-2019 school year.

This system is comprised of three parts:
• First, we will install a visitor screening system at the front desks called LobbyGuard. Learn more. 
• Second, we will install impact/shatter-resistant 3M Safety and Security Window Film on all the windows on campus.  Learn more. 
• Lastly, we will install 16 new surveillance cameras to cover entrances and outdoor common areas which will log multiple days of activity. 

Earlier this year, STCS made commitments of almost $8,000 towards this system. This includes the LobbyGuard system as well as blackout curtains for all the classroom door windows.

STCS isn’t provided with sufficient state and federal funding to meet our security goals, so we’re asking our community to contribute the remaining $40,000 towards the 3M Safety Window Film and the surveillance cameras.
For just $47 per student, this project will be fully funded.
Thank you for your donation in this initiative to keep our students safe.

If you need to work out payment options for summer school, please indicate this on your enrollment form, we would be happy to work with you. If you are choosing to do the summer school, please complete the enrollment form and return with the Learning Extension Fee.

If your kiddos are looking for something to get the blood pumping this summer, consider one of our summer sports camps. Attached is a list of camps as well as their days and times. You can call the school office and we can complete the form for you or you can complete the form and drop it off.
