The mission of the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools is to support, promote, and advocate for the Louisiana charter school movement, increasing student access to high quality public schools statewide.
Influence Public Policy
The LAPCS is the only statewide entity dedicated to advocating for charter schools at both the state and local levels. The LAPCS provides information to legislators, district officials, and policymakers about the issues that are important to charter schools and organizes the charter school community to support legislation that will give charter schools a fair opportunity to successfully educate the children of Louisiana.
A major element of the mission of the Association is informing the greater public about what charter schools are and the successes they have. LAPCS stays on top of all major media outlets and helps to generate accurate news about charter schools through timely press releases and responses to inaccurate information placed in the media.
Membership & Programs
As a member-driven organization, the LAPCS is constantly striving to find new and innovative ways to help support the charter schools of Louisiana. Our constant communication and monthly meetings with our member schools help us to stay on top of the evolving needs of our members and help find creative solutions to the unique challenges faced by charter schools.
