Information For Lawmakers

Texas public charter schools are an important part of the public school options available to families. In fact, there are more than 700 public charter schools in Texas, serving nearly 300,000 students. 

Despite their amazing success at closing achievement gaps or helping send more students to and through college, public charter schools still face legislative and regulatory hurdles that  keep them from spending their funds in the classroom and, in some cases, from even opening their doors.

On this page you’ll find resources to help you learn more about public charter schools and what types of policy changes could help them grow and serve more students and families. 

Thank you for standing up for Texas students and families!
