As many of you are aware, we are deep into the 86th legislative session in Austin. The 86th Texas Legislature began on January 8, and concludes on May 27, 2019. This happens every two years where our elected senators and house representatives meet to look at needed changes or additions to our current laws.
Today, we will be sharing information about some proposed bills that legislators have asked to be considered, some of which are hurtful to charters. You will also learn what you can do to help stop these hurtful bills.
Starlee Coleman, CEO of the Texas Charter School Association (TCSA), will share the urgency around the needed advocacy to those of us who love and value charters. This includes parents and charter employees.
We will also hear from Michael Aguilar, TCSA Regional Engagement Manager. He will share step by step strategies on how parents and staff can let their legislators know how they feel about certain proposed charter bills that can be either bad or good for the charter school movement.
Here is your opportunity to learn how to get your voice heard in Austin!
