A MESSAGE FROM LEADERS BUILDING LEADERS
The NC Association for Public Charter Schools Conference is an annual event that Tom and I look forward to each year. Over ten years ago, we started attending the conference as charter school principals; now we serve as business partners working alongside the Association and its goal to grow highly effective charter schools in North Carolina.
Just this spring, Leaders Building Leaders and the NCAPCS partnered to provide weekly Zoom meetings for charter school leaders, providing access to industry experts, legislative updates, answers to all things COVID-19, and most importantly, a community.
It is an honor to serve alongside Rhonda and her team and look forward to the opportunity to share at the conference again this year. We always leave the conference rejuvenated and ready to serve with new ideas and partnerships, and we know you will too!

NEWS FROM THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE
Earlier this summer, the National Alliance convened a number of charter support organization (CSO) leaders to help think through what would be most helpful to charter schools with respect to creating “reopening plans.” The group decided that reviewing existing documents and plans and then providing some summary guidelines and suggestions on key topics would be the most helpful, given the fact that each community and state would have different circumstances related to the pandemic. Download the document “A Compendium of Public Resources on the Safe Reopening of Charter Schools” that is the result of that effort.
