Advocacy Corner
Texas Charter School Advocacy
  •  THANK YOU to all the parents who submitted online comments in support of HB1348, which prohibits cities and municipalities from discriminating against charter schools. This critical bill passed out of committee and is headed to the calendars committee, who will schedule it for a vote on the House floor in the coming weeks.
  •  The Texas Legislature has begun committee hearings in the coming weeks. It is crucial that we charter parents follow legislation that could impact our schools. Please sign up for parent advocacy updates through the Texas Public Charter School Association at the following link:
  • Did you know some people don’t want families to have school choice? They oppose charters, and they flex their political muscle. Let’s show our political representatives that we charter parents stand for school choice and quality education by signing TPCSA’s online petition here   Stand strong for charters schools, and SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this petition with friends, family, and neighbors.
