HARRISBURG (May 10, 2021)  – The Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter School (PCPCS) today announced the three subgrantees who may receive as much as $1.5 million each through Pennsylvania’s Charter School Program (PACSP) Grant. The three public charter schools were chosen to receive the federal funding during the inaugural year of the grant program. The funding was awarded to PCPCS to expand public charter school options in Pennsylvania. “We are thrilled to make this announcement for many reasons, but especially as we kick off National Charter Schools Week in Pennsylvania,” said Brandie Karpew, co-director of PACSP. “This week is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of public charter schools, nationwide and in Pennsylvania, and the impact that charter schools have had on thousands of students. It is only fitting that we announce, this week, the expansion of Pennsylvania’s public charter school movement through the PACSP Grant.”
