TPCSA has evolved to serve its members the way you’ve asked to be served – through effective advocacy and a strong communications plan to help strengthen public opinion, address and correct misinformation, and highlight the positive impact you’re having on your students’ and parents’ lives every day.
We’ve got big plans to build on our legislative successes and we need you! We look forward to cultivating more relationships with legislators and community partners, bringing to light all of your achievements, and working with you to enable your students, teachers, and parents to use their voices to defend our charters! But our work doesn’t stop at the Capitol. We continue to keep a pulse on regulation that affects you by testifying and submitting public comment to proposed rule changes, escalating important issues, and elevating the charter voice at the Texas Education Agency.
