SPS seeks New Quality Charter School Applications

Apr 26, 2014 | Updates

From Spokane Public Schools:

Spokane Public Schools welcomes local and national charter school applicants to submit proposals for new charter schools that will serve our community’s needs. 

Through an Application for New Quality Schools, SPS is seeking motivated and targeted groups – including educators, parents, teachers, and community leaders – with the drive, experience, and commitment to start new, high-performing schools in our neighborhoods in 2015-2016 or 2016-2017. 

As part of the district’s new strategic plan, SPS has clear goals to dramatically increase student achievement, to ensure student academic growth, and to add a number of new choice options to our school district offerings. 

We are looking for proven, research-based models that will offer rigorous curriculum, strong relationships, and innovative approaches to education. Our expectation is that applicants will propose school models that will help us meet our T-2-4 goal of preparing our diverse student body for post-secondary success and beyond.
