At INCS, we believe strong charter schools help create a better public school system for everyone. Some of the benefits charter schools deliver include:
Parent and Community Empowerment
In order to make the most of the benefits charter schools have to offer, we need strong statewide advocacy and support systems that will help charter schools as they work to improve education throughout Illinois. INCS works to strengthen charter schools and the communities they serve in a number of important ways:
Policy Leadership: INCS captures learnings from the charter community that contribute to education reform more broadly.
Advocacy: As the voice of charter schools throughout Illinois, INCS guides and informs public policy, advocating for state and district policies that will help charter schools grow and flourish.
School Support: INCS provides guidance and services to charter schools to help them learn from experts and each other, solve problems, and achieve their aspirations.
New Charter Growth: INCS helps communities and school leaders start up new charter schools across the state.
Education: INCS increases public awareness about charter schools, and helps families find the best charter schools to suit their needs.
