Highlight an educator

The #MICharterHero project aims to recognize one shining star in our MI charter community every month. Nominations are open to the public, collected on a rolling basis, and totally anonymous.

Tell your story

Our long-term success depends on our ability to connect with our communities, lawmakers and neighbors. Talk about the amazing things happening in your school or classroom, and do it often.


Build key relationships 

Hearing from real parents, educators and advocates is key for local lawmakers. Look up your Senate and House lawmakers.
