This community news alert was sent to us by Audrey Williams:


If you are you considering opening a charter school in the District of Columbia, then please attend an information session for prospective charter school applicants on Wednesday, December 8, 2010.   The session is hosted by the D.C. Public Charter School Board (PCSB) and will be held at 3333 14th Street, NW, 2nd Floor Conference Room at 6:00 pm. 

 

 

In November the PCSB released its 2011 Application Guidelines for establishing a public charter school in the District of Columbia. The guidelines provide the steps required for organizations seeking approval to open a new charter school or convert a traditional, parochial or private school. The application deadline is February 1, 2011.  The Board will vote on new applicants in the spring of 2011.  Approved schools would be authorized to open in the fall of 2012.

 

Prospective applicants may download the application guidelines from the Board’s website or come into the PCSB offices to pick up a printed copy.  For more information about the application process, visit the PCSB website at www.dcpubliccharter.com/2011-Charter-School-Applications/2011-Charter-Application-Guidelines.aspx

 

The D.C. Public Charter School Board currently oversees 52 public charter schools on 93 campuses serving more than 29,000 students living in every ward of the city.  Public charter schools now serve approximately 39% of all public school students in Washington, D.C.  Learn more about PCSB at www.dcpubliccharter.com.
