VSBA ACTION ALERT
CHARTER SCHOOL CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
Call Your House of Delegates Members
Thank you for your continued efforts opposing the charter school constitutional amendment, which divests local school boards of the sole authority to approve charter schools. The VSBA lobbying team has been diligently working to share our opposition to this legislation but WE NEED YOUR HELP!
This morning the House Privileges and Elections committee narrowly passed, on a 10-9 vote, the charter school constitutional amendment (HJ1) and accompanying legislation (HB3). This very close vote is a testament to your advocacy efforts and we need your help again! Now the amendment and legislation will be going to the floor of the House for a vote. By Tuesday morning, please CALL YOUR DELEGATES and ask them to vote NO on the charter school constitutional amendment (HJ1) and accompanying legislation (HB3). Please utilize the attached VSBA talking points and share with your legislators that VSBA does support high-quality charter schools, as defined by local school boards, not an unelected Board of Education.
Thank you again for your continued support of VSBA. Your voice makes a difference in Richmond.
