Dues Go Directly to the Alliance’s Objectives

The North Carolina Alliance for Public Charter Schools (“The Alliance”) is the state’s only 501(c)(3), nonprofit, non-partisan organization with an all-volunteer Board of Directors combining over a century of first-hand experience in charter school operations, law, policies, and finance. The Alliance mission is to advance quality educational opportunities for all North Carolina children by supporting and expanding successful public charter schools and it serves as the advocacy organization and voice for charter schools in North Carolina.

 The Alliance depends on membership dues to function and exist. The charter community must join together in one experienced voice to ensure that a favorable regulatory environment is created and maintained.  While adhering to the highest standards of accountability with common-sense regulations, existing schools can continue to excel; and new schools will have the Alliance’s experience to call upon for the support they need to be successful in the critical early years.

The all-volunteer Board of Directors of the Alliance combines over 100 years experience in all aspects of charter school operations.

All dues go directly to supporting the Alliance’s objectives – not its directors or officers.

Memberships are available for each fiscal year from July 1 through June 30.  Dues are based on each school’s prior year’s enrollment as tabulated by the Department of Public Instruction.  Dues will be invoiced in June and are due and payable on or before July 1.  Each North Carolina charter school which becomes a paid member shall have the authority to appoint one representative and one alternate representative to act on their behalf.  Although we welcome new School Members at any time, dues cannot be prorated for a partial year.

Newly approved charter schools shall be considered as honorary members for the period from the award of their charter until June 30 at the end of their first academic year. Each honorary member shall have the authority to appoint one representative and one alternate representative to act on their behalf.  Dues at the standard rate will become due and payable on July 1 of their second academic year.

Above and Beyond Charter Schools
A few of our charter school members have gone above and beyond with additional giving, donating resources, or providing services. Schools at this level represent the highest ideals and commitment of service for charter schools in North Carolina. If you wish to go above and beyond for charter schools, please contact us at e-mail or call 888-275-5161 for details.
