Greetings KIPP families,
IT IS TIME FOR US TO ACT NOW!
The legislative session in Annapolis has started and we need your help!
Last week, Governor Hogan announced that he had filed
House Bill 156/Senate Bill 172 (PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL FACILITY FUND).
This legislation would create a
fund with state dollars that would provide public charter schools up to $1,600 per pupil to help us pay for our facilities expenses. For KIPP, this would be over $2 million a year to help us cover our rent, maintenance costs and the needed renovation for our new building. Click
for more information on this important bill.
What can YOU do?
Come to our
Annapolis Lobby Night
on February 19th (5:30 pm to 7:30 pm).
We teach our students that showing up is half the battle in this world. We need you to do the same for our lobby night in Annapolis. Sign up to join us (and bring your KIPPster!) in Annapolis by e-mailing Jasmine at
. Agenda, location, and transportation details coming soon! Buses will be provided.
Please join us in February in making our voices heard.
