Friday Updates – April 10, 2015

There is still time to support SB 819 (senate bill) that has been introduced in the Oregon Senate and would increase the public funding of Oregon (non-virtual) public charter schools to 95%!  The Arco Iris Board wants to enlist your help in advocating for its swift passage by the Oregon Legislature. It’s not too late!

We are asking our parent community to please contact their Oregon legislators. In particular, please reach out to your state senator as well as the education committee and let them know you support SB 819 and they should as well.  Email them, call them, write them, meet with them, but use your voice! Charter schools around the state are working together for more equitable funding. Click HERE to read our post from last week for more details, including an email/letter template, and links to your legislators.
