Schools & School Boards – Charter Schools – Funding — Capital Outlay — ConstitutionalSugar Creek Charter School, Inc. v. State Our statutes allow charter schools access to local school districts’ current expense funds but not to the local school districts’ capital outlay funds. This arrangement is constitutional; N.C. Const. art. IX, § 2(1) requires the state to establish a uniform system of public schools but does not prohibit the state from setting up additional schools outside the uniform system. We affirm the trial court’s order dismissing plaintiffs’ request for a declaratory judgment.
