Philadelphia Charters and Advocates Oppose Policy 406

Posted 03.22.2018

In advance of the voting meeting this evening, the attached letter was sent to the members of the Philadelphia School Reform Commission (SRC) from our Executive Director urging a NO vote on an amendment to Policy 406.

Excellent Schools PA is part of a coalition of more than 60 charter schools (80% of the charter operators in the City), the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools and Philadelphia Charters for Excellence that have banded together to oppose amending Policy 406.

Despite months of calls from Philadelphia’s charter community, advocates and families with students in charter schools, the SRC has continued its push for adoption of Policy 406, which is an over-reach of the Commission’s powers and duties as a charter school authorizer.
