Reasons to Support Charter Schools

Learn > Help bring charter schools to WA!

There are NO charter schools in Washington, but here's what YOU can do!

Dear Friend,

It's been almost eight years since our charter school was repealed by referendum. For the first time since 2004, there is a realistic chance to bring the choice of charter public schools to Washington State.

If you want to help, click on this link and add your email to our mailing list.


A broad, bipartisan coalition has filed a ballot initiative for the November 2012 ballot that would, if approved by a majority of voters, bring the choice of charter public schools to WA.  Click here to read the latest news.

The first hurdle that must be cleared is gathering over 241,000 voter signatures by the deadline on July 6, 2012.

Before signatures can be gathered, however, the Secretary of State must assign a number to the ballot initiative and the Attorney General's Office must prepare a ballot title.  That should happen by the end of next week.

Once the ballot title is finalized, petitions will be printed and distributed.

If the Secretary of State certifies that enough valid signatures have been collected from WA voters, the initiative will be placed on the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot, along with the vote for President, Governor, and other statewide initiatives and referenda.
