Equity for All Students; Equity for All Schools

Charter voices speak out! The 14th Annual Charter School Advocacy Day in Albany is just around the corner. Please join us on Tuesday, February 6 as we advocate on behalf of charter schools and their students!

Unlike previous years, we are planning a smaller, more strategic event this year. Rather than pack up busloads of charter supporters, we are asking each school to identify a smaller, committed group of parents, students and staff to join us at the Capitol. Our goal is to pack the day with meaningful meetings and displays of charter support. We’ll celebrate together and make sure our message is heard!

Our theme this year is Equity for All Students; Equity for All Schools, and we are fighting for:

Fair Funding. Charter schools are still underfunded compared to district schools, and many charters receive no facilities funding. We want to provide equity for all charters.

Elimination of the Cap. Whether it’s a new school or a respected charter school that wants to replicate, there should be no artificial limit on the number of charter schools that can open in New York.

Common sense policies for special education students. Charter schools should be able to contract with BOCES and collaborate with other charters to provide special education programs.
 
RSVP NOW!
 
We look forward to seeing you in February!

RED RIBBON WEEK 10/23/15-10/31/2015

DID YOU KNOW? Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t; yet, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.

Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started.

This year’s theme is Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free. Visit www.redribbon.org to learn more about Red Ribbon Week and get tips for talking to your kids about drugs. The life you save may be that of your own child or a dear friend.

Take the Red Ribbon Pledge now and be a part of the creation of a drug free America: redribbon.org/pledge
