We are launching a campaign to preserve the public charter school facility allowance. We need your help in having your trustees, parents and allies contact key city officials to let them know we don’t support cuts to the facilities allowance. And with the wonders of technology, and some help from our friends at the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, you can now click on a link (below) to send a customizable email message to the city officials working on the city budget.
Please help by calling or emailing one or all of the following individuals before Friday the 13th to state your support for maintaining the facilities allowance at its current level of $3,109 per student. You don’t have to engage in any conversation; it should just take one minute each to make the statement, say thank you, and hang up or to click on the link, customize your message, and hit send.
