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:
. 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.
We look forward to seeing you in February!
