Leadership Networks - Public Policy & Advocacy
Join colleagues and ACSI leadership as we navigate the ever-shifting world of policy and politics in an ongoing effort to advocate for Christian education.
The primary goals for this network are:
- Equip leaders with tools and training to do advocacy
- Empower leaders to have a greater voice and larger positive impact on public policy and issues important to their school communities
- Encourage leaders by providing the opportunity for them to connect with subject matter experts and other school leaders who are involved in public policy and advocacy efforts
Advocacy efforts will be focused in these areas: religious liberty, educational freedom/school choice, limited government involvement/regulation, and Christian schools as a public good.
What Our Network Members Say...
“One of the main benefits of our ACSI membership has been the information provided for all things related to new and upcoming laws and regulations. The Public Policy and Advocacy Leadership Network takes it to a whole new level and one that is very needed! With all that the legal challenges we face daily, it helps to hear from other school leaders and guests of ACSI in a format where I can ask questions and get ideas and answers!Amy Walker, Heritage Oak School, CA
