Action alert: Contact lawmakers about ADM hold harmless provisions

By September 9, 2021 News
The COVID variant and the uncertainty families now feel have led to unexpected drops in enrollment for public charter schools. As a result, we’re working hard on ADM hold harmless provisions for 2021-22.

Take action

We also need you, as school leaders, to take action–and to ask your parents to do so as well. The power to allocate COVID relief funds for hold harmless provisions rests in the state budget and with leaders in the NC General Assembly. These leaders need to understand how the drop in ADM and concurrent loss of funds could impact your school.

What you can do

Please contact Appropriations Committee Chairs in both chambers of the General Assembly. Ask them to hold public schools harmless in the state budget for 2021-22 ADM. Share information with parents in your school community, urging them to take action as well. We have developed talking points and sample email text; click here to access that information.  Contact the General Assembly leaders listed below by phone or email today, Friday, and over the weekend.
