Branch Resolution Against Charter School Conversion

The Branch resolution against charter school conversion has been developed to encourage branches to affirm their desire to remain a public school. We believe it is important for teachers and school communities to take the lead in the conversation, and to make their opposition to conversion visible.  

The resolution is an affirmation which can be celebrated and shared with your principal and board. On this page are the resources to support branch chairs and members in holding a branch meeting to sign the resolution, and to take steps to present this to your School Board and Principal.
