National Charter Schools Week 2022 Starts Sunday, May 8

By May 5, 2022 News

National Charter Schools Week 2022 is right around the corner! This year, NCSW launches on Sunday, May 8, and runs through Saturday, May 14. The theme is “Charter Schools Rising.” This theme seems especially appropriate this year, given the hard work of so many charter schools to help mitigate student learning loss during the pandemic.

Resources for schools

Schools, please use your platforms and networks to promote charter leaders, teachers, students, and schools–and the broader charter movement.

To help you celebrate, we’re passing along resources from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools.

  • You can access social media graphics from the Alliance here. Be sure to use the hashtags #CharterSchoolsWeek and #charterlove.
  • Learn more about NCSW here.

In addition, we want to share two great 1-minute videos from North Carolina charter leaders. Watch them talk about the benefits of public charter schools! Charters work so well because of their autonomy and ability to pivot quickly.

  • The first video features John Marshall (Union Academy), Cheryl Turner (Sugar Creek Charter School), and Coalition Board member Jonathan Bryant (Lincoln Charter School).
  • The second video features Tammy Finch (The Expedition School) and Barry Ross (Apprentice Academy High School).
