25 years of charter schools in North Carolina!
Charter leaders, mark your calendars for June 21, 2021! Exactly 25 years before, on June 21, 1996, North Carolina lawmakers ratified legislation permitting public charter schools.
Lawmakers passed the “Charter Schools Act,” NC Session Law 1995-731, with significant bipartisan agreement and support. Then-Governor James B. Hunt, Jr., signed the law.
We have long planned to commemorate this major milestone. We want to celebrate the numerous significant contributions the charter school movement has made to K-12 education in North Carolina!
What do we have planned?
