Joining the Oregon Coalition of Community Charter Schools is easy. The annual fee to join the Oregon Coalition of Community Charter Schools is based on current student enrollment. ORC3S offers two categories of membership to meet your needs: Full and Affiliate Membership.
Full Membership: a vote in matters of the organization, heavily discounted rates for ORC3S programs, full access to cost free technical assistance, serve on ORC3S special committees that help plan our work (i.e. policy & advocacy committee), and benefit from the ORC3S policy and legislative advocacy.
Affiliate Membership: discounted rates for ORC3S programs and limited access to cost free technical assistance, benefit from the ORC3S policy and legislative advocacy. Please note that affiliate membership is only good for a year period of time (365 days from membership start) and revert to full membership upon renewal in year two and beyond.

WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MEMBERSHIP?
In addition to being a part of a coalition of community-based charter schools, the Oregon Coalition of Community Charter Schools is here to provide your school support and technical assistance on chartering, governance, leadership, human resource management, and advocacy. New this year, membership also provides access to the new Member Portal, a catalog of member-exclusive content, along with promotion of your school's job postings on our new Job Board.
We will work with policymakers at the state and local levels to advocate for policies that support community-based charter schools and work to the benefit of all public education. We'll also support you in building relationships with local, state and federal lawmakers.
We provide resources and peer-to-peer mentoring to schools through our network of experienced school leaders.
Charter schools were created as laboratories of innovation. We seek out opportunities for collaboration with school districts, charter schools, and other educational entities. We welcome opportunities to learn from and exchange ideas with our colleagues.
ORC3S MEMBERSHIP is open to Oregon community-based charter schools that:
are Tax-exempt 501(c)(3) entities
