We are excited to announce that NECSN is now the Connecticut Charter Schools Association! The Connecticut Charter Schools Association is a nonprofit membership organization that serves as the statewide voice for the 22 public charter schools in Connecticut, representing their interests at the state and local level, as well as providing resources and convenings to support the great work that charter schools are doing across the state.

So, what’s in a name? We believe that identifying ourselves as the Connecticut Charter Schools Association brings greater clarity to our work to advocate for equitable resources and consideration for the students of Connecticut attending any of the state’s 22 public charter schools— from New London to Bridgeport, and everywhere in between. We do this by effectively advocating for equity in resources for the students most at-risk, convening charter school leaders from across the state, and providing the public with resources to better understand the integral role that charter schools play in educating Connecticut’s young people.

I encourage you to explore the new site to learn more about what we do and about the outstanding work of charter schools across Connecticut! Thank you for visiting!
