Each year, the League hosts an annual Charter School Advocacy Day at the Capitol. Last year, we had over 200 charter school supporters participate. It's an exciting day where the charter school community - school leaders, teachers, parents, students and community members come together to learn best practices on how to become an effective advocate.
Attend this event to learn about the Colorado legislative process, garner helpful tips about effective advocacy, understand current education bills with impacts on charter schools, visit and tour the State Capitol, meet elected officials and share your story about the importance of charter public schools.
In addition to parents and other charter advocates, we encourage staff and students to get involved in this day, too! After all, who makes a better advocate than the students currently attending charter public schools? This workshop is geared towards middle school and high school teachers and a small group of students (6-8 students; 10 maximum) . Travel subsidies are available on a first-come, first-served basis!
