Regional Meeting Wrap-up (Including Resources!)

  • Print

May 24, 2012 We had a great set of regional meetings this last week.

We learned about all the legislation that could possibly affect charters, of which there is plenty. If you want to read up on them go to the current legislation page in the advocacy section of our website.

We discussed the May revise and how charters need to budget conservatively for the coming year since there are so many unknowns. If you have not read the most current Budget Update, take a look. The last page includes projected numbers for the upcoming school year which is helpful for planning purposes.

We also learned about how to successfully market our schools using a variety of sources. For ideas and information on marketing your school visit "Communications and Community Outreach" on our website for some great resources.

Thanks to all who attended and we hope to see more people next school year. We don't have specific dates yet but look for the towards the end of September, beginning of October. If you have a space to host or would like to present to the group on a specific topic, please let me know. We want to make these meeting useful to you.
