Over 300 charter supporters descend upon the State Capitol for Advocacy Day as CCSA celebrates National Charter Schools Week
On Tuesday, May 2, the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) hosted its Advocacy Day, an annual event held during National Charter Schools Week when California's charter public school community joins forces to rally behind urgent legislative opportunities and demonstrate its collective strength and diversity to elected leaders. In 118 meetings with legislators, families shared their experiences at charter schools and urged legislators to support policy that will help charters thrive.
Advocacy Day is a critical opportunity for charter school leaders, teachers, parents and students to set the record straight and illustrate how legislation and the state budget can impact charter students and families.
