Successful Charter School Practices


2013-2016 New York Dissemination Program Grant

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has received funds from the United States Department of Education under the Charter Schools Program of 2012. Schools chosen as recipients of this grant will exemplify autonomy, accountability, and high performance. These schools will have practices that are evidence-based, proven to advance student achievement, and can be replicated at non-chartered district schools.  The NYSED will offer individual awards of up to $500,000 over three years – two years for project implementation and one year for evaluation.
