Attention, parents! Did you know the future of charter education is at risk? The upcoming 2024-2025 Pennsylvania Budget includes potential reductions in funding for cyber charter schools, which could impact your child’s learning experience.

  • Charter schools are essential for offering diverse, quality educational choices to students and families across Pennsylvania.
  • Issues such as equitable funding, support for special education, limitations on enrollment, and transportation are crucial to ensuring all students receive fair educational opportunities.
  • The suggested financial cuts to cyber programs risk compromising the achievements of charter schools and limiting the educational tools available to our students.
  • Maintaining the funding for charter schools is critical to guarantee that every student can access a superior education, no matter their location or socioeconomic status
