                Proclamation 9742 of May 4, 2018

                
National Charter Schools Week, 2018

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                The first public charter school opened its doors in 
                Saint Paul, Minnesota, 26 years ago. Wanting to offer 
                families more high-quality education options, it was 
                founded to promote accountability and innovation, and 
                to advance academic achievement. Now, 44 States, the 
                District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have passed laws 
                authorizing the creation of charter schools, which are 
                responsible for educating millions of students 
                nationwide. During National Charter Schools Week, we 
                celebrate the more than 7,000 charter schools across 
                our country, their teachers and administrators, and the 
                students they serve.

                My Administration has prioritized support for charter 
                schools so that more students have access to this 
                valuable academic option. In my fiscal year 2019 budget 
                request, I called on the Congress to increase funding 
                for the Federal Charter Schools Program to $500 
                million. This program strengthens State and local 
                efforts to create and expand charter schools to help 
                meet the growing demand for this educational option and 
                increase charter schools' access to high-quality 
                facilities.

                Each child is blessed with unique talents and learns in 
                different ways. Charter schools enhance educational 
                options for families and empower teachers to explore 
                innovative programs, alternative curricula, and 
                creative approaches to education to ensure that they 
                meet their students' individual needs. Charter schools 
                provide educators the flexibility to equip students 
                with knowledge and skills that give them the 
                opportunity to achieve their academic goals and pursue 
                successful careers.

                This week, we acknowledge the critical role charter 
                schools play in providing students with rigorous 
                education that holds them to high standards. A great 
                education is the foundation for a better future for 
                students facing the demands and challenges of the 21st 
                century. As a Nation, we should continue to support and 
                address their dreams in their innovative efforts to 
                help students reach their full potential.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim May 6 through May 12, 
                2018, as National Charter Schools Week. I commend our 
                Nation's successful public charter schools, teachers, 
                and administrators, and I call on States and 
                communities to help students and empower parents and 
                families by supporting high-quality charter schools as 
                an important school choice option.
