California Charter Schools Get 13 Million In Education Grants
The department awarded 27 new grants in 12 states totaling $39.7 million distributed under the Charter Schools Program to high-quality school networks expand.
“These charter school grants will help open new charter schools and expand or replicate those with a record of success to help ensure that every student has access to high-quality educational opportunities that prepare them for college, careers and life,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in a statement.
During the first year of funding, the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools received $2.4 million, Aspire Public Schools $3.3 million and Green Dot Public Schools $7.4 million.
The California-based charter school networks are expected to get additional funding next year.
The focus of the awards was on charter schools that fall under President Obama’s Promise Zones initiative, which is aimed at urban, rural and tribal communities.
