Purpose of Program: The purpose of the Charter Schools Program (CSP) is to increase national understanding of the charter schools model by-- (1) Providing financial assistance for the planning, program design, and initial implementation of charter schools; (2) Evaluating the effects of charter schools, including the effects on students, student academic achievement, staff, and parents; (3) Expanding the number of high-quality charter schools available to students across the Nation; and (4) Encouraging the States to provide support to charter schools for facilities financing in an amount that is more commensurate with the amount States have typically provided for traditional public schools. The purpose of the Collaboration Awards competition (CFDA 84.282P) is to encourage high-quality public charter schools (as defined in this notice) to partner with non-chartered public schools and non-chartered LEAs to share and transfer best educational and operational practices, and to disseminate information about such practices. By promoting strong partnerships and supporting the dissemination of information about the activities carried out through these partnerships, these Collaboration Awards should facilitate the exchange of best practices between public charter schools, non-chartered public schools, and non-chartered LEAs; and help the United States Department of Education (Department) identify and publicize successful collaborations. The Collaboration Awards competition is designed to encourage public charter schools, non-chartered public schools, and non-chartered LEAs to share resources and responsibilities; build trust and teamwork; boost academic excellence; and provide students and their parents with a range of effective educational options. The Department, through the Collaboration Awards competition, aims to increase national understanding of the charter school model. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.282P.
