GH ADVOCACY CORNER
Thank you to all the parents who participated in last Sunday’s virtual march at the Capitol for “Students over Politics” and reached out to their elected officials to support pro-charter legislation in the final week of the 87th Texas Legislature.

The charter school community took a win with the passage of a bill giving public charter schools a property tax exemption on leased or purchased property. The bill squeaked by with a vote of 68 to 67 in the Texas House.

On Tuesday, an El Paso representative killed a critical piece of legislation for charter schools on a point of order for the second time. This urgent legislation would have protected charter schools from discrimination by planning and zoning commissions. This is a tough loss, and we must work on elevating our voices in the interim to educate our elected officials on this critical issue. 

If you would like to learn more about advocacy in the legislative interim, and how you can help, email Great Hearts parent advocacy manager Bridie Chaudoir at bridie.chaudoir@greatheartstx.org.
