The grassroots team is hard at work as the current school year comes to a close.  From direct parent training to hosting on-campus events to bringing elected officials to your schools, we want to support your advocacy needs!

Last week, Texas Charter Revolution wrapped up a series of 4 neutral candidate forums leading up to the important May 22nd runoff election.  These events brought TCSA member schools together with their families and community members to provide candidates the opportunity to meet with their constituents.  Check out video and photos of the Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas forums on the Texas Charter Revolution Facebook page.  In addition, a San Antonio mom talked about why these forums are so important to her and this Austin charter school board member and mom shared her perspective about what an event like this means to her family.

The Texas Charter Revolution has come a long way in the last four years.  Our supporters have stepped up in big ways to support historic legislative wins, but there is still much work to be done!

The next legislative session is a few short months away, and already public charter school issues are a hot topic of debate in and around the Texas Capitol.  It is imperative that elected officials – or those seeking elected office – hear from public charter school families.  NOW IS THE TIME to engage with our team so that we can give your school community all the tools that it needs to stay involved.

It is imperative that elected officials – or those seeking elected office – hear from public charter school families.  Be sure to read and share this important piece by Dr. Becky Goode, your elected advocacy chair, about the importance of participating in the May runoff election.
