Magazine to feature Okla. charter schools

Many Oklahomans are unaware of the successes of Oklahoma's charter schools. To help remedy this situation, the Oklahoma Charter School Association is teaming up with Tierra Media Group to publish "The Charter Schools of Oklahoma," a magazine set for distribution in January 2010. According to Bill Bleakley, Tierra's president and CEO, the magazine will
  • Inform legislators, civic leaders, and the public about Oklahoma’s charter schools;
  • Provide a history of the development of charter schools within the state and their contribution to education;
  • Explain the unique nature of each charter school, its mission, and enrollment criteria;
  • Help recruit students by informing parents about charter-school opportunities;
  • Inform potential donors about charter schools’ achievements and benefits; and
  • Provide the sponsoring districts with an overview of their charter schools.
The magazine will be mailed to 3,500 civic leaders, governmental officials, donors, patrons, and interested citizens. In addition, each school will receive 500 copies to distribute to potential donors and student families.

Sponsorships are available. To learn more, contact Bill Bleakley at bbleakley at tierramediagroup dot com.
