Federal Charter School Program (CSP) Grant
The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) received a grant from the U.S. Department of Education to increase charter school quality and authorizer accountability. The Charter Center's four objectives focus on increasing the number of high-quality and sustainable charter schools and by doing so, the number of students served and academic achievement for all students, with particular attention to those who are disadvantaged, underserved and/or at risk.
Minnesota’s Federal Charter Schools Program (CSP) Grant project objective include:
- Increase the number of high-quality charter schools that serve disadvantaged students and the overall number of students served by charter schools in Minnesota.
- Support charter schools in achieving the goals of Minnesota’s World’s Best Workforce legislation.
- Increase the quality of Minnesota charter schools through authorizer training and evaluation.
- Increase the sustainability of Minnesota’s charter schools.
