ACTION ALERT: URGENT!!! CHARTER SCHOOLS
Please contact your Representative immediately, TODAY, about this important issue!
The House Rules Committee approved SS/SCS/SB 576 (Bill Stouffer) on May 9. The bill provides for expansion of charter schools and charter school accountability and transparency. The bill will be placed on the House calendar and will likely be taken up for final passage during this last week of session.
Please call or contact your state representative in opposition to expanding charter schools state wide. Charter schools have not proven that they are the panacea for districts that are unaccredited or provisionally accredited.

Please remember you are contacting your Legislator as an individual, not as a member of the League.
The league supports accountability and transparency reform measures and believes these should be implemented and verified.
The League opposes the expansion provisions of Charter Schools statewide, as contained in SS/SCS/SB 576 to expand Charter Schools to unaccredited districts, districts accredited without provisions, and districts with provisionally accreditation.
Sample Message: I urge you to vote NO on SS/SCS/SB 576 if the expansion provision of Charter Schools remains in this final bill.
