Nevada Charter School Program (NCSP) Grants


Overview

The Nevada Department of Education received a $16.4 million federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education to increase the quality of public charter schools in our state between the years of 2015-2018. This grant is designed to support newer public charter schools in Nevada and to disseminate best practices from effective charter schools to the rest of the public education system. Funds will be used to:

  1. Improve student achievement in Nevada charter schools, particularly for students who have historically underachieved (graduation rates and career/college enrollment).
  2. Promote the high-quality dissemination of Nevada charter school best practices to other schools.
  3. Strengthen the overall quality of the Nevada charter authorizing and CSP administrative infrastructure.
  4. Strengthen the overall quality of the Nevada charter authorizing and CSP administrative infrastructure.

The Nevada Charter Schools Program (NCSP) provides two types of competitive subgrants to qualified charter school operators and developers (committees to form): (1) for the planning phase and early years of implementation of new charter schools; and (2) for experienced and successful charter schools to assist other schools in adapting their charter school’s program (or certain aspects of the charter school’s program) or to disseminate information about the charter school.

    Planning/Implementation Subgrants

    To provide financial assistance to eligible applicants for the post-charter planning, program design, and initial implementation of charter schools within the first three years of operation.
