Nearly 3,000 charter schools serve almost600,000 students in the United States. However, in Virginia the use of charter schools to provide educational alternatives to children has been underutilized, with only nine schools serving about 1500 students.This workshop is designed for those who currently operate charter schools, those ready to prepare a charter school application, and those who simply have an interest in providing educational alternatives.Our sessions will focus on the “How To”: How To build community support for a charter school, How To develop a strong charter school application, and How To secure federal grant funds to get your school operating during the critical first three years.“Building Community Support for Your Charter School”Anna VargheseVice President, External Affairs Center for Education Reform
