"As a member of the IPCSA, I am confident that our school is being represented by competent, knowledgeable, and caring individuals before the Indiana General Assembly, DOE, and authorizers. Also, I am always excited to have opportunities to network with other Charter School Leaders through the efforts of IPCSA."

"The Indiana Public Charter School Association provides our schools, Muncie and Indianapolis, a network of like-minded leaders throughout the state. Through these school leaders, along with the Association, we have an opportunity to support each schools efforts in a variety of ways. A value add of our membership is representation at the State House that allow us to be more proactive rather than reactive to issues that confront our reform efforts."
Head of Schools
Indianapolis & Muncie
"The Indiana Public Charter Schools Association is tremendous resource for charter schools. Legislative changes can have a huge operational impact on charters and the Association's quick response and communication of these potential changes helps boards and leaders stay "in the know." Additionally, having a central communication point for networking and disseminating information is an invaluable asset to school leaders."
"We belong to the IPCSA because of its strength and track record in supporting the interests of Indiana's charter schools in the legislature. The IPCSA works with its members to identify issues that are important to take forward to the legislature, and also identifies potential legislation that might be harmful to charter schools and works with legislators to minimize the impact. The IPCSA has also done a good job of bringing school leaders together for informal networking events, providing opportunities to learn from each other."
