Awards for charter school programs

The purpose of the CSP is to increase national understanding of the charter school model (1) by expanding the number of high-quality charter schools available to students across the Nation by providing financial assistance for the planning, program design, and initial implementation of charter schools, and (2) by evaluating the effects of charter schools, including their effects on students, student academic achievement, staff, and parents.  The Secretary awards grants to state educational agencies (SEAs) on a competitive basis to enable them to conduct charter school programs in their States.  SEAs in turn use their CSP funds to make subgrants to eligible applicants in their State.  These subgrants are used for planning, program design, and initial implementation of a charter school, and to support the dissemination of information about charter schools, including successful practices demonstrated by charter schools.
