Tell the Senate: More Charter Schools Need Facilities Funding

  • Print

August 1, 2014 We need your help TODAY to pass AB 948, critical charter school legislation!

In two weeks, a key vote is taking place that will decide whether Assembly Bill 948 (Olsen) related to the SB 740 Charter School Facilities Grant program will move forward in the legislative process.

The changes proposed in AB 948 will allow more charter schools that serve low income students to be eligible for the SB 740 program using existing funds. In effect, AB 948 will allow schools to spend more money IN the classroom and not ON the classroom. Learn more at our AB 948 Web page.

Write Senate Appropriations Chairman Kevin de Leόn TODAY and urge him to pass AB 948 off of the Suspense File. We need to demonstrate the importance AB 948 and the strength of the charter school movement.

Because our movement is made up of many voices, we have created a variety of letters for you to choose from. Feel free to edit and personalize the letter. Please click on the link below that best describes you:
