OCEAN GROVE CHARTER SCHOOL

INSTRUCTIONAL FUNDING

Ocean Grove Charter School (OGCS) is a WASC accredited charter school
managed by Innovative Education Management (IEM). The school is part of
the IEM family of parent choice charter schools that thousands of families
have chosen for their children in grades K through 12 since 1993. OGCS was
approved as an independent study charter by the California Department of
Education in 2005. The school serves students in Santa Cruz, Monterey,
San Benito, Santa Clara, and San Mateo counties.


The instructional funds (IF) are set up in an IF account that is managed by
the ES. When families place order requests for curriculum/supplies with an
approved product vendor, sign up for classes with an approved service
vendor, request online managed licenses (OMLs), or choose to participate
in school provided services (ESi, High School Support classes, field trips,
Science and Art in the Park, etc) the ES will issue a purchase order from the
family’s IF account to the approved vendor.

  • Instructional fund rates are subject to change each year based on state
budget.
  • Instructional funding is prorated by day for late enrollment.
  • The Instructional Funds are dispersed 2 times a year into the ESs
budget. The total funding amount is divided in half and added to
instruction funds twice a year.
  • Funds can be used for extracurricular activities, however, you must be
using an approved vendor and the student’s educational needs in the
core areas are being met. The ES must have evidence that the student
has the materials that he/she needs for core academics (math, ELA,
science, history) prior to placing a purchase order for anything
extracurricular.
