Become a Charter School Advocate!
As an A360 family member, you are a vital member of the Colorado charter school community. Because of the great options they often represent, charter schools are now serving over 125,000 children across Colorado. As a member school of the Colorado League of Charter Schools, we would like to encourage you to sign up to receive messages from the League’s Colorado Charter Advocacy Network (COCAN) to stay informed about issues that affect our school and the charter community. You can also text “COCAN” to 52886.
COCAN was designed to keep charter school families and supporters informed about pressing issues impacting our school and to provide you with an opportunity to speak up and advocate for your student. The more charter families are ‘in the know’ about issues affecting charter schools, the more proactive we can be and the better it is for our school. SIGN UP FOR COCAN HERE
