Helpful Tools:

National Alliance for Public Charter Schools 

The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools advocates for the millions of public school students attending or hoping to attend a charter school through federal and state advocacy efforts, research, and elevating national awareness for the charter school movement.  Their work educates lawmakers and thought leaders about how charters can meet the needs of communities they serve by providing families with public school options.

New Mexico’s Open Meetings Act

New Mexico’s Open Meetings Act  generally prohibits a public body from conducting public business in secret or in closed meetings and requires that such business be conducted by the public body acting as a whole at meetings open to all persons who wish to attend and listen.
