More Georgia children will soon have access to a high-quality public school thanks to a vote by the State Charter Schools Commission of Georgia. On Wednesday, the SCSC approved five public charter schools participating in Georgia Charter Schools Association’s Charter Incubator program, a competitive and rigorous, year-long training process that recruits and trains top talent to start public charter schools in Georgia. DeKalb Brilliance Academy, Liberation Academy, Miles Ahead Charter School, Peace Academy and ZEST Preparatory Academy were among a group of only six new start-up charter school petitioners the SCSC decided to authorize for the 2022-2023 school year.
The Georgia Charter Schools Association (GCSA) is seeking a Director of Grassroots Advocacy (DGA) to lead the recruiting, training, organizing, mobilizing, and maintenance of a grassroots movement in support of beneficial charter school policies. Under the direction of the EVP of Policy and External Relations, the DGA will develop and implement a grassroots strategy to create a “Charter School Ambassadors” program that ensures effective volunteer engagement through regular communications, advocacy training, and both online and personal calls to action to raise awareness and demonstrate support for policy change at the local and state levels.
