The purpose of the Charter Schools Program (CSP) is to increase the national understanding of the charter school model by (1) 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.
Under the Replication and Expansion for High-Quality Charter Schools competition, the CSP awards grants to eligible applicants, including non-profit charter management organizations. Eligible applicants must have demonstrated success, including success in increasing student academic achievement.
Grant funds may be used to expand enrollment of one or more existing charter schools by substantially increasing the number of available seats per school, or to open one or more new charter schools based on the model for which the eligible applicant has presented evidence of success.
