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.
Non-State Educational Agency (SEA) eligible applicants in States in which the SEA does not have an approved application under the CSP may receive grants directly from the Secretary for planning, program design, and initial implementation of charter schools, and to carry out dissemination activities.
