Charter School Day at the Capitol!lfinkel
On Wednesday, March 7th, we sent four SHPA teachers to the state capitol to participate in Charter School Day at the Capitol. This is an annual event organized by the Minnesota Association of Charter Schools, during which individuals from the charter school community are given opportunities to meet with their respective legislative representatives and advocate on behalf of charter schools. Our teachers met with the state house and senate representatives from both Bloomington and Richfield districts. Our teachers took this opportunity to share information about our school as well as discuss some of the opportunities charter schools offer in addition to some of the challenges they encounter. We are eager to continue our efforts in the area of legislative advocacy for charter schools and look forward to keeping you informed of our progress!
