November Votes Impact Education
November 2, 2012 The election process inevitably has an impact on education. Whether it is an election for the local school board, the State Assembly or Senate or on up to the president, elected officials often address issues of education that can and will affect our schools. Tomorrow's election is no different. In fact, one could say that this election could potentially have a larger impact than normal on the work that we do on a daily basis with the long list of elected officials and propositions being voted on.
It's never too late or too early to begin the process of engaging your schools stakeholders in the next election. The Association has developed multiple resources to engage your schools & parents at various levels and I believe all are complimentary in their efforts. Since so many of our schools are 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporations, Our CIVICS (California Informed Voters In Charter Schools) is a great resource for you. Lastly, CCSA Advocates, a 501(c)(4) organization working in tandem with CCSA, allows folks to really get into the politics of electing officials whether that be for your local school board or on a statewide level. I encourage you to reach out to me to discuss these resources can benefit your schools.
