Region 3: Rally for Funding Equity at the Capitol; Media training from a pro

  • Print

January 12, 2012 Have you registered for the upcoming Region 3 Charter Leaders meeting in Sacramento (1/26)?

The agenda is focused on preparing you to be an informed advocate on critical policy issues that will effect charter schools. First, we'll look at the Governor's January Budget. It includes some big wins for charters - if the state legislature approves it. Find out how you can support the charter-friendly state budget proposal by participating in the Rally for Funding Equity at the State Capitol (2/29). Then, we'll learn more about the fight to stop AB 1172, a bill that passed out of Assembly Appropriations last week, and would allow charter school to be denied if there is a negative fiscal impact on the district. Finally, we'll take a look at local elections in 2012, and talk about what's at stake and what you can (and can't) do as a charter school.

We'll also have a quick training from special guest, Vicky Waters. She'll provide ideas for earning positive media coverage during key enrollment periods, offer tips and pit falls to avoid when working with reporters, and show you how letters-to-the-editor can help during renewal, facility fights, and more.
