Purpose: The goal of the New Jersey Charter Schools Grant Program/Cadre 17, Year 1 of 3 Implementation Grant is to support the planning and implementation of newly approved charter school applicants’ educational and organizational plans. During the planning period, charter applicants are expected to refine their educational program by considering their desired educational results and establishing methods for measuring progress toward achieving those results. Under federal guidelines, the planning period is also used for professional development of teachers and other staff who will work in the charter school. The grant application must reflect the approved final and complete charter school application. This grant award is part of a three-year program. Year 1 of 3 is a 7-month period and will start January 1, 2011, and end July 31, 2011. The charter schools eligible for Cadre 17 funds have declared their intention to open their doors in September 2011.
