We are your leading voice

As an advocate for North Carolina Coalition for Charter Schools, we serve member schools and the 120,000 plus students that benefit from the education each school provides. Through our mission and vision, we strive to keep charter school and school choice advocates informed with timely and crucial legislative information that equates in their success.

Legislation

As a unified voice, the Coalition will work to advance statutory changes to ensure that all public school funds follow the child. Existing funding inequities that legislatively have omitted access for public charter schools, must be addressed.

We have needed a group like NC Coalition for a long time. Charter Schools must work
together in a smart, strategic and coordinated way to repeal unfair cuts to their funding and tell the world about the good work they do.

Legislation

Financial Equity for NC Charter Schools

As a unified voice, the Coalition works to advance statutory changes to ensure that all public school funds follow the child. Existing legislative inequities within per pupil local funding and state-level grants which have omitted access for public charter schools must be addressed.

Regulatory Equity for NC Charter Schools

Recent court rulings and legislative action have resulted in the requirement that all policies affecting charter schools must be reviewed by the Regulatory Rules Commission. As the only trade association for North Carolina charter schools, the Coalition serves as the leading charter school voice in Raleigh to the rules commission, the state legislature, and all regulatory bodies; as we work to advocate for the flexibility and innovation that we know are foundational for charter school success.
