2012 Charter Schools Program Exemplary Collaboration Awards
2012 Charter School Program Exemplary Collaboration Awards
The application period for the U.S. Department of Education’s inaugural Charter School Program Exemplary Collaboration Awards closed on August 29, 2012. Information about the winners will be posted on the Resource Center website. The Department plans to use up to $500,000 for this competition and estimates making from three to five awards.
The competition is designed to encourage high-quality charter schools to partner with non-chartered public schools and non-chartered LEAs to share and transfer best educational and operational practices, and to disseminate information about such practices. The collaborations may focus on a wide range of areas, including curriculum and instruction, data management and sharing, organization management, personnel, facilities, finances, Federal programs, standards, assessments, special education services and access to charter schools by students with disabilities, English learners, student transportation, professional development and training, and school climate.
