Membership for Charter School Authorizers
We understand your commitment to quality and strive to work in partnership to achieve your goals, ultimately helping to push the charter movement to the next level.
Power in Your Voice
MAPSA will give you inside knowledge on key legislative bills, familiarizing you and empowering you take a stand on the issues. We will engage in legislative and public relations activities, whether seemingly insignificant dangerous policy details or vital strategic changes. We will act as an advocate and guardian for you on the front lines, watching over the issues, building awareness of charter public schools and working to proactively address policy issues that impact our members.
Helping to Improve Quality
In the last year, we have made great strides in our efforts of establishing resources for charter founder groups, in the hopes of improving the quality of applicants that come to you for a charter. In a partnership with Michigan’s Department of Education, founding groups receive grant money to purchase intensive training services coordinated by our association. We have developed an interactive, intensive training program that will help applicants to not only understand expectations but, more importantly, to achieve those expectations.
Saving you Money
MAPSA is committed to helping you save money on the purchases necessary for running your business and the schools you serve. We are able to do this through leveraging the size of the entire charter school market. To date, we offer programs in insurance, employee benefits, office supplies and furniture.
In addition, members save on professional development opportunities presented by the association.
