Structure and Funding of SST

SST: A Public Charter School

The School of Science and Technology are public charter schools accredited and audited by the Texas Education Agency. SST operates under the Riverwalk Education Foundation, a nonprofit corporation in San Antonio, Texas and was established exclusively for educational, scientific and literary purposes with the primary objective of establishing science, technology, engineering and math focused public charter schools.

SST serves students from kindergarten through twelfth grade and has no admission criteria. Students apply and are selected through a random lottery process. Unlike a traditional public schools, SST is self-governing and students are not required to live in a specific zip code to apply for enrollment at any SST campus.

Funding

Just as other public schools, SST is funded by the State of Texas based on average daily attendance. Essentially this means that for each day a student attends SST and meets attendance criteria, SST receives funds to provide educational services. Unlike traditional public schools, SST does not receive any local taxes.
