We want to recognize Triangle Math and Science Academy (TMSA) in Cary for inviting a state lawmaker and an elected official for a school visit during National Charter Schools Week 2022. Reaching out to state lawmakers and elected officials is a great way for charter schools to ensure that top state and local decision-makers know about charter successes! This practice also helps to build relationships. Such relationships are critical to have in place before the time comes to promote bills and policies–or to work to have them changed.
