Colorado Charter Advocacy Network (COCAN)august 2020 new logo swirl blue
As a parent of a student at Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen, you are a vital member of the Colorado charter school community. Because of the great options they often represent, charter schools are now serving over 125,000 children across Colorado. As a member school of the Colorado League of Charter Schools, we would like to encourage you to sign up to receive messages from the League’s Colorado Charter Advocacy Network (COCAN) to stay informed about issues that affect our school and the charter community. You can also text “COCAN” to 52886.
COCAN was designed to keep charter school parents and supporters informed about pressing issues impacting our school and to provide you with an opportunity to speak up and advocate for your child. The more charter parents are ‘in the know’ about issues affecting charter schools, the more proactive we can be and the better it is for our school.

Elections for the RMAE Board of Directors will be conducted in May.  Please consider running for a 3-year term as a Parent Representative.  For more information including instructions on becoming a candidate, please contact Board Secretary and Parent Representative Janelle Herrera at jherrera@rmae.org.  We welcome interest and involvement from any and all parents of current RMAE students.  However we are particularly hoping to round out the existing Board’s composition with some of the following skills and characteristics: a parent of a middle schooler, an attorney or other legal experience, a parent with involvement in other community organizations, a parent with technology related expertise, and/or a male parent to maintain good balance of perspectives.  Even if this wish list doesn’t describe you, you might still be a great fit, so please reach out to get involved!
