Despite the fact that charter schools are public schools too, for many years they haven’t been equally funded compared to other district schools as the state’s charter law intended. This past legislative session, the Florida Legislature passed a law to stop these practices and ensure that all of Florida’s public school children are treated equally.
Thanks to the support of families and educators who believe that parents have a choice in their child’s education, Governor Scott signed the bill into law, guaranteeing that charter schools would receive the same amount of support as other public schools.
The Florida Charter School Alliance is hosting a workshop to discuss the impact of 7069 and the district’s decision to challenge this law. Charter Schools are a minority group that must come together to fight for the equal treatment of our students. Without a unified voice, the majority will almost always win. You’re invited to join us for a dinner workshop Monday, October 30 Our workshops are free and fun - served with a delicious dinner! Come learn news and updates about your school and how to be the best advocate for your kids.
Monday, October 30, 2017 6pm - 7:30pm Renaissance Charter School at Summit 2001 Summit Blvd. West Palm Beach, FL 33406
