Visit the complete newsletter here or read below for a sneak preview…

Newsletters will include a mix and match from the following:

  • Three Rivers School District Updates – The TRSD school board has our fate in their hands! Learn the latest news regarding our charter proposal.
  • Action Steps – What can you do to help KCA reach opening day?
  • KCA Student News – Hey young people! We’re not waiting until opening day before reaching out to you, too!

  • Charter School Conversations – What is a charter school? We’ll address a question or two about the definition, composition, history and controversies of the charter school movement in the United States.
