U.S. Department of Education awards $23 million to APSRC
The Arkansas Public School Resource Center is pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of Education will award APSRC a $23 million-dollar grant that will go toward the accomplishment of three goals:
- To increase the number of high-quality charter schools and conversion charter schools with an emphasis on those that serve educationally disadvantaged students
- To improve student outcomes, particularly where educationally disadvantaged students are concerned
- To disseminate best practices
APSRC will be responsible for allocating the funds to sub-grantee schools.
Arkansas last received the Charter Schools Program (CSP) grant in 2011.
