Charter Day at the Capitol 

Wednesday, May 10, 2023

Charter Day at the Capitol is HERE! This tradition directly connects us with the decision makers in Lansing, showcasing the vibrancy, passion and diversity of our movement - and we can't wait to see you this year!  CDAC 2023 is just one pice of our week-long 2023 Charter Schools Week celebration. Registration is open to all educators, parents, advocates and students who would like to join. The first 500 registered attendees will receive a complimentary t-shirt to wear at the event. 



Registration + Check In. If you pre-registered, you'll grab your 2023 CDAC t-shirt. 



Our Capitol Steps program will begin, and last about 45 minutes. Our guest speakers and honorees include diverse charter stakeholders from across the Mitten!

Get Involved: Send a Letter to Your Legislators 

Hand-written letters are a great way to connect with your local legislators, and our plan is to gather as many letters from charter students, parents and educators as we can - then deliver them to the offices (or to the inboxes) of as many lawmakers as possible. These letters should be personal, and should help your lawmaker get a sense of why your school is so important to your community. Download the template below to participate!
