New Information and Tools from Charter School Dissemination Projects Now Available

The Massachusetts Department of Education has funded Charter School Dissemination Grant projects through a federal award for more than 8 years. These competitively awarded projects support the sharing of innovations from successful charter schools as required by Massachusetts law.

Information about the 2006-2007 round of Massachusetts Charter School Dissemination Grant projects is now available. Projects include the continuation of governance trainings by Sturgis Charter Public School and the "Making Learning Visible" Collaboration by Conservatory Lab Charter School. In addition, new projects underway are:

  • Exponential Growth: High-Impact Practices to Raise Mathematics Achievement, a project by Prospect Hill Academy Charter School to share its successes in high school math instruction with the Somerville Public Schools and other districts;
  • A project by North Central Charter Essential School to share its grades 7 - 12, inquiry based, "Essential Science" program; and
  • A collaboration led by Boston Day and Evening Academy to create tools to evaluate school impact on student development for at-risk youth.

In addition, final products, tools, and results from the 2005-2006 round of this grant program-including a high school literacy project by Codman Academy Charter Public School and a differentiated learning project by Martha's Vineyard Public Charter School are now posted.
