Where We Stand
We know all children can achieve academic success and have bright futures! That is why Illinois charter public schools are changing the landscape of public education by improving access to great schools for more families and pushing academic achievement higher to make high school graduation and college a reality for all students.
The legislative agenda of the Illinois Network of Charter Schools reflects the priorities, current issues, and concerns of charter schools in the state. INCS actively advocates for the promotion and access of charter public schools, academic achievement, and increased accountability.
INCS is a leader in grassroots advocacy in the Illinois General Assembly every year. We develop public policy positions and legislative agendas for the benefit of public education, in addition to tracking major legislation, testifying in committees and providing third-party verified data to elected officials.
The 2015 Illinois legislative session is still in progress.
