This is Your Organization
Organized by charter school leaders for the benefit of charter schools, the North Carolina Alliance for Public Charter Schools is the statewide membership organization representing effective charter schools of all types. Our membership unifies all charter schools in order to achieve critical policy and programmatic gains.
The Alliance was created in 2009 as a member supported organization to give charter schools a voice and remains the longest standing organization benefiting charter schools in North Carolina.
The Alliance is led by an six member board, and a volunteer leadership team with significant national policy experience and charter school expertise. Our goal is to provide resources for common charter school issues and provide a place where charter school leaders can have a voice. Initiatives include:
Providing cooperative services and partnerships that save member schools money and ensure compliance is top priority for our members. The Alliance has developed partnerships with screened vendors that work on a regular basis with charter schools in the state. We are also developing board and administrator training, no-cost legal consultation with licensed school law attorneys, and model charter board policies for charter school operations. The Alliance continues to research and develop other products and services for member schools including cooperative purchasing, risk management, student data management, financial data management, and technology solutions.
Promoting a policy agenda that fosters charter school growth by securing equitable funding, establishing fair accountability, and encouraging new sustainable charter schools. Constantly monitoring legislative actions, the Alliance has built a durable bipartisan legislative coalition to support our unified advocacy agenda. The Alliance will continue to strengthen regional grassroots advocacy leaders, persuade targets with effective messaging, promote our advocacy agenda, and mobilize parental support to achieve our objectives.
The Alliance is developing training programs for our charter school leaders. We are in the process of identifying partners and setting up programs that will be beneficial to all members.
An annual conference is vital to the charter school movement in the state of North Carolina. The next Annual North Carolina Charter School Conference: “Strong Schools Build Strong Communities ” scheduled for July 22-24,held in Concord/Charlotte will be drawing 800+ charter educators, supporters, vendors all for the purpose of nurturing and furthering charter schools in North Carolina.
