We are your leading voice

As the North Carolina Coalition for Charter Schools, we serve 62 member schools and 48,000 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 works to advance statutory changes with the goal of ensuring that all public school funds follow the child. Existing funding inequities that have omitted access for public charter schools in legislation 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 N.C. Charter Schools

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

Regulatory Equity for N.C. 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.

Communications to members include timely legislative updates on bills of interest to charter operators, along with our exclusive monthly newsletter, the Coalition Connection.

General Assembly, upcoming election information, and other items of interest to charter schools.

Education

Compiling information critical for voters

Elections have consequences. Understanding this, the Coalition works steadily and proactively to educate voters about education issues and local candidates. Education involves compiling candidate questionnaires, developing voter guides, and creating other support material to ensure voters have what they need to make informed choices at the polls—and that they know how the candidates view education issues that are critical to the Coalition’s mission and to the sustainability and growth of charter schools.
