DC Charter School Conference

Connecting our Strengths

The first-ever DC Charter School Conference, hosted by FOCUS, brought together public charter school leaders, administrators, board members, and stakeholders diving into topics including advocacy, data, development and communications, diversity, leadership, operations, and more. Conference participants spend the day:

  • Learning from experts about issues facing DC’s public charter schools.
  • Sharing innovations and best practices that are driving student outcomes.
  • Inspiring each other to engage in advocacy that strengthens our movement.  
  • Connecting our strengths to achieve the goal of quality public school choices for all DC families.

The conference featured interactive workshops, inspiring speakers, timely content, and opportunities for discussion and collaboration. Attendees had the opportunity to choose from a variety of substantive sessions that fit their individual needs, as well as to learn together about issues that the entire DC charter sector faces.
