Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, school board directors and charter school trustees are required to complete training programs pursuant to Act 55 of 2017. School board directors or charter school trustees appointed as of July 1, 2018 will be required to complete the initial four-hour training program required under Act 55 during their first year in office. The training programs are intended to enhance the skills and knowledge necessary for individuals to serve successfully on the governing bodies of public schools across the Commonwealth.

In partnership with Charter Choices and the attorneys that are members of our Legal Advisory Council, the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools (PCPCS) is hosting this training so that we may be directly involved in the accountability and success of all Pennsylvania charter schools.

The trainings are free of cost for PCPCS members. There will be a $80 per person cost for non-PCPCS members to attend. If a school would like to have an on-site training, the cost is $500 for 2 hours or $1,000 for 4 hours.

This is an online event! Login instructions will be sent with your registration confirmation.
