The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) will be releasing a $10 million grant program for the District’s public charter schools to support and prioritize the return of students to classrooms.
This is a formula grant, with awards to each charter local educational agency (LEA) proposing to reopen in the 2020-21 school year for in-person classroom instruction meeting certain requirements. OSSE will base award amounts to each charter LEA on the number of schools that reopen, the type of program offered at each reopened school, and the number of students attending in person.
OSSE is issuing this Notice of Intent to Apply to gauge the interest in this grant and to calculate estimated awards for each LEA that responds to this notice. Additional information about the grant is provided below. Submitting this form is not required to apply for the grant, but we strongly encourage interested LEAs to complete and submit so that OSSE can provide a good estimate on the likely award distribution.
Please return this form to [email protected] by 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.
