Colorado League of Charter Schools Major Events 

The Colorado League of Charter Schools hosts various events throughout the year to build a strong community of educators, parents, leaders, partners and supporters who continue to positively impact charter school students, while strengthening the charter school movement. These events run the gamut from fall to spring and include the Leadership Summit, the Annual Conference, Advocacy Day, the Educator Summit, and more. 


Each event is built with the intent of bringing together a network of support, creating a learning community, building connections and furthering the mission of providing high-quality public school options for children in Colorado.  Whether you're looking for professional development, networking, or advanced topics to strengthen and enhance your knowledge and skill set, these events will provide you with opportunities that fit your needs.

It’s a great opportunity to network with a wide cross-section of your peers and learn from experts in the field about how to successfully tackle the complexities of marketing and communications.


BUILD: Business Sessions 

These meetings BUILD networking opportunities and professional development credits for charter school business managers. All school leaders and staff involved in school business operations are invited to attend these informative workshops to stay abreast of relevant compliance updates, legislative issues, and best practices in the areas of finance, facilities, I.T., Human Resources, and more.
