NHDOE Competes for Federal Charter Funding
The New Hampshire Department of Education has joined 31 other states in a national competition to secure additional funds for charter schools. The New Hampshire application requests $9.6 million in funding over a five year period.
If the application is successful, grant funds can be used to:
- Fund new public schools
- Expand grades served in charters currently open
- Develop & implement pre-k programs
- Fund dissemination projects designed to share what charters have learned with other public schools & LEAs, mentor new groups
- Provide training opportunities for charter school authorizers
The grant application received strong support and letters of recommendation from, Governor Maggie Hassan, Senator Kelly Ayotte and Congressman Frank Guinta. NHAPCS would like to thank these leaders for their support of this important public program!
