What is the purpose of the grant?

The Pennsylvania Charter Schools Program (PACSP) represents $30 million in funds available to help Pennsylvania expand opportunities for students to attend excellent public charter schools that meet and exceed state academic standards. PACSP will promote two overriding outcomes:

  • increasing the number of high-quality charter schools that educate substantial at-risk student populations, and

  • improving student outcomes in PA charter schools, particularly for at-risk students.

Both interim and summative performance measures have been set to achieve this long-term impact.
