Charters Open Doors

Dear Charter School Parents, Guardians and Supporters,

We’re excited to announce our annual Charter School Advocacy Day in Albany! Please join us on Tuesday, February 7 as we travel to our state's capital to let elected officials know that charter families are a force to be reckoned with.

This exciting day will be filled with entertainment (students will have a chance to prepare a performance for Open Mic!) and meetings with elected officials. Transportation, breakfast and lunch will be provided.

WHAT WE’RE FIGHTING FOR:
  • Parity in Funding: Charter school funding continues to trail behind the district’s. Parity in funding, including fair facilities funding, remains a top priority.

  • A Cap Lift: With only 30 charters left to be authorized in NYC, we will likely run out of new charters by the end of 2017. We are asking our legislators to remove the arbitrary cap on quality once and for all!
Register now and
help us spread the word!
 
After you register, staff from the Charter Center or your school will be in touch with details.

We hope you'll join us for Charter School Advocacy Day in Albany!

RED RIBBON WEEK 10/23/15-10/31/2015

DID YOU KNOW? Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t; yet, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations.

Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started.

This year’s theme is Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free. Visit www.redribbon.org to learn more about Red Ribbon Week and get tips for talking to your kids about drugs. The life you save may be that of your own child or a dear friend.

Take the Red Ribbon Pledge now and be a part of the creation of a drug free America: redribbon.org/pledge

Advocacy Day 2015

On Tuesday, February 3rd -- Charter School Advocacy Day 2015 -- a number of WCHS parents and students travelled north to Albany to stand up for New York State charter schools.

Williamsburg Charter High School supports raising the cap on charter schools in our state and we support the fight for more per pupil funding. Congratulations to our Advanced Choir who performed beautifully!
