The Texas Charter School Association is providing a charter bus.

Why should I go?

Several bills are moving forward in the legislative process that if passed would help narrow the funding gap for students attending a public charter school and those at traditional school districts

Benefits of these bills:
  • General per student funding could increase
  • For the first time, charter schools could receive facility funding
  • Charter schools could receive access to low finance bond money
How can you make a difference?

We encourage you to take ACTION:
  • Share your story. Write letters to your lawmakers encouraging them to pass these bills. (See here for a sample letter.) Drop off your letter at any Meridian office or email giving@mwschool.org, and we'll make sure they get in the right hands.
  • Join us for a rally at the Capitol on April 26 to support Texas public charters schools.
