National Leadership Activities Grant
The Massachusetts Charter Public School Association has completed our three year National Leadership Activities grant from the U.S. Department of Education (2015-2018).
The work we did through this federal grant focused on developing a model for supporting our charter schools to systematically build the capacity of their faculty and staff to better serve students with disabilities and English learners. We created a support model for the MA charter public school sector to tackle this challenge.
