Review Process

Dissemination grant applications will be reviewed by a broad-based committee of individuals supportive of the systemic reform of public education, the public charter school concept, and knowledgeable of educational and organizational concepts embodied in school reform. Review criteria will be based upon the specific indicators listed in this RFP.

Permissible Use of Funds: Authorized dissemination activities include assisting other public charter schools by:

  • Assisting other individuals with the planning and start-up of one or more new public schools (including public charter schools) that are independent of the assisting public charter school and the assisting public charter school’s developers.

  • Developing partnerships with other public schools (including public charter schools) designed to improve student performance in each of the schools participating in the partnership, including improved student performance in the disseminating school.

  • Providing curriculum materials, assessments and other materials that promote increased student achievement, and are based on successful practices within the assisting public charter school.

  • Providing materials that document the successful practices of the assisting public charter school and are designed to improve student performance.

  • The grantee shall ensure that any publication that contains project materials also contains the following statements:

The contents of this (insert type of publication; e.g., book, report, film) were developed under a grant from the Department of Education. However, those contents do not necessarily represent the policy of the Department of Education, and you should not assume endorsement by the Federal Government.” EDGAR 75.620(b)

Applicants must target one or more of the fundable activities (listed above) in their grant proposal.

A public charter school may not use:

  • grant funds for regular operating expenses,

  • grant funds, either directly or through a contractor, for marketing or recruitment activities designed to promote the public charter school or for general operating purposes, and

  • grant funds to implement activities, programs, etc. to be disseminated at a later date.

Grant funds may be used to develop materials documenting current successful practices of the public charter schools for the educational purpose of assisting other schools in improving student academic achievement. Any public charter school receiving a dissemination grant must provide thorough and high-quality information that meets the needs of other schools trying to learn from the public charter school’s experience.

Application Timeline: A public charter school may apply for the dissemination grant during any grant cycle after March of their third year of operation.
