Rilke Schule Inc. is a non-profit entity that supports the Rilke Schule German School of Arts and Sciences charter school with after-school club operations, capital investment, real property acquisition and property operations management.
Rilke Clubs is our newest endeavor. At the request of Rilke Schule Academic Policy Council (APC), RSI has taken over the operation of Rilke Clubs. Rilke Clubs is a set of extracurricular activities offered before and after school at Rilke Schule. In the 2018-2019 school year, clubs will be available from 7:00 am to 7:45 am and after school until 6:00 pm. The current Clubs List for Fall 2019 is posted on the Rilke Clubs page.
RSI has traditionally served as the facilities arm of the school. The organization played a key roll in the development of the new building that opened in 2015. RSI made a significant financial contribution to the project, as well as purchasing many needed items not included in the construction costs. Additionally, RSI board members served on the Building Task Force created by the Rilke Schule Academic Policy Council (APC) to figure out the financial and planning aspects of the project. See About Us page for more details.
RSI is the only organization affiliated with Rilke Schule that can hold long-term funds for the schools future needs. This is a major reason that RSI was able to make a significant financial contribution to the building. All proceeds for RSI revenue streams and donations are used to support Rilke Schule.
Rilke Schule Inc.
Rilke Schule Inc. (RSI) is run by a volunteer board of Rilke Schule parents. RSI aims to support the school by partnering with the Rilke Schule Academic Policy Council (APC) and Rilke Schule Verein (RSV) to ensure the long term sustainability of this charter school. RSI has done this in a number of ways including being the school’s landlord at the previous location, building portables, supporting the planning of the new building, serving as the fiscal agent for the Rilke Trails program and now operating Rilke Clubs.
The board has had a history of longevity among its members with most members serving two 3-year terms. RSI is always looking for additional parent volunteers to help with the numerous tasks it undertakes throughout the year. As a volunteer board, additional assistance is always appreciated. This is especially true as we undertake the Rilke Clubs program, which is outside the organization’s wheelhouse.
Since RSI’s primary mission of finding Rilke Schule a permanent facility has been accomplished, the organization is in a period of transition and shifting its operating priorities from facilities to extracurricular programming. RSI brought on three new board members in April to help with this transition. The board will be working to update its Vision and Mission statement, as the transition process evolves.
