As part of our efforts to serve as a trusted broker in connecting people, organizations and resources to build and strengthen the charter school community, the MN Association of Charter Schools provides excellent opportunities for our member schools to cooperate together and pool resources, such as:
- facilitating collaborative efforts between schools to share in workshop costs,
- connecting member charter schools with local organizations offering volunteer assistance, and
- negotiating marketing opportunities which allow member schools to work together and pool resources for great advertising and exposure to families and the general public at a fraction of what these opportunities would cost a single school.
Upcoming opportunities, as they become available, will be posted for member schools below – login access required. If any member schools have an opportunity they would like to potentially share with fellow schools, please contact our office at 651-789-3090.
