Purpose: The goal of the New Jersey Charter Schools Grant Program Expansion 1 FY18 Grant is to increase the number of seats in data driven highly effective and efficient Charter Schools. These expanded charter schools will promote high student academic achievement for all children, including those with special needs, and help them meet the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Eligible applicants will be selected through a competitive process in Year 1 and are schools that have met the criteria of "High Quality" and who received from the NJDOE an approved amendment or renewal charter to significantly expand their enrollment beyond the totals established in their initial charter.
