Today, PCPCS announced the theme and participants for the 2018 PCPCS Charter School Conference! We are thrilled to have such a dynamic group of panelist discussing such an important topic!

Expanding Opportunities: Authorization Pathways and Oversight

Charter schools have served Pennsylvania students for over 20 years. In the past two decades, we have learned a lot about the improvements that should be made to our charter school law; however, opportunities have been missed and the antiquated process provided for in law for charter school creation hinders growth and expansion. Join us to discuss how additional pathways could open the door for new charters, how quality oversight could help improve performance, and how best to advocate for these crucial changes.

PA State Rep. Bryan Cutler (R, Lancaster)
