Re//DEFINED, a community development corporation based in Alexandria, Louisiana has submitted an application to open a new charter school system in Rapides Parish. 

Schools of Academic Restoration is seeking community support and endorsement of the newly proposed charter school. 

SOAR will initially serve 144 K-2 students, additionally adding 1 grade per year up to 5th grade. SOAR wil also house Pre-K students through its partnership with Save the Children. 

S.O.A.R. has identified the need for a school model that:
• Centers around educational equity for minorities and economically disadvantaged students.
• Creates a replicable educational system that yields high academic achievement.
• Provides an alternative school choice.
• Eliminates politically governed school boards.
• Aggressively invests in early literacy development to decrease the number of
students who do not progress academically.
• Directly address academic gaps for struggling students through our “Student
Recovery Program,” minimizing the number of potential students who may be classified as special education due to academic performance and students who are at risk of not completing high school.
• Provides competitive base salaries for teachers and staff that are at or near regional averages.
• Builds and strengthens relationships with stakeholders, including the Rapides Parish School District, and makes significant investments in the surrounding communities.
• Restores the citizens’ trust in the public education system.
