The Communications Associate will transform NACSA’s written word from “wonky” to “compelling” by translating materials into easily digestible content derived from our research, policy positions, and authorizing best practices.
ABOUT NACSA AND OUR WORK
At the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA), our goal is to double the number of students in quality charter schools by 2025. To do this we focus on strengthening charter school authorizing—the work of authorizers to approve new charter schools and ensure each school is achieving great outcomes for students. If and how well authorizers fulfill their responsibilities directly shapes the quality of public schools available within a community.
That’s why we work with authorizers across the country to develop, implement, and maintain rigorous authorizing practices. We provide trusted, independent policy resources to build state foundations where charters can thrive. We conduct research to identify emerging issues and trends in the field that inform the national conversation.
Because every charter school has an authorizer, our work is making a difference for hundreds of thousands of students nationwide. There is no organization better poised to have this kind of impact.
