As the 2017-18 school year begins for students nationwide, the horrible impact that Hurricane Harvey has had on Texas’s families weighs heavily on the hearts and minds of students, teachers, and leaders from across the country.
We’ve heard from several of our colleagues in Texas and have begun sharing on social media the different ways our network can help. Please join the National Alliance in supporting those impacted by donating to these fundraisers combating the horrific effects that Hurricane Harvey has had on their school’s community.
While the strength of the charter school movement comes from our ability to be different and innovative we have never stopped uplifting each other in a time of need. Please help those in Texas’s school community that are in need of dire support.
