New Schools For Phoenix, which is committed to the growth and expansion of high-quality public schools for low-income students in the Phoenix area, awarded $1 million to four charter schools that have the potential to profoundly impact student achievement for Phoenix students.
“We are proud to support these schools that share our mission to ensure all students, regardless of zip code, receive a high-quality education. New Schools for Phoenix is helping develop great schools in the neighborhoods where they’re needed most – empowering families and closing the achievement gap in our community.” –Eileen B. Sigmund, New Schools For Phoenix manager
Each public school was awarded a $250,000 grant to expand high quality seats to low-income students. Grants funds are contingent upon the approval of a signed charter contract with the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools.
Congratulations to the following public charter schools:
