Charter School Community

Charter school teachers and staff often don't have an opportunity to interact with colleagues outside of their own school. is one way charter school teachers, staff, administrators and parents can see what's happening outside their own, hear directly from others who share their same passions and frustrations, share ideas and best practices, and take collective action on important issues.

Michigan ACTS believes that a strong partnership between schools and parents is essential to the academic well-being of students. When school staff and parents work together to reinforce high standards of conduct and achievement, the result is a school that "works," a learning environment that promotes success.
