State School Facilities Bond Webinar for Charter Schools on December 15
December 9, 2016 Proposition 51, the K-14 School Facilities Bond, passed on November 8, 2016 with 55% of the vote. Proposition 51 includes $500 million for charter public school facilities. Applications for bond funds will not be available for a few months. In the meantime, CCSA is advocating for changes to improve the facilities bond program for charter schools.
CCSA will be holding a webinar on the State School Facilities Bond program on December 15 from 1 - 2 p.m. Join this webinar to learn more about how charter schools can participate in the State Bond program. You can register for the webinar here.
Invite Your Legislators to Visit Your Charter School!
The 2017-18 class of the California Legislature took their oath of office on December 5, 2016. Now is a great opportunity to reach out to your legislators and invite them to visit your school. One creative example of how to invite a legislator for a visit comes from SOAR Charter Academy. SOAR students created a video congratulating Assemblymember Eloise Reyes (D-San Bernardino) on her recent election and invited her to visit their school. You can look up who your legislator is with the Legislature's Find Your Rep tool.
