40 Groups Seek to Open New Charter Schools Across NEW YORK

north-carolina-new-chartersAlbany, NY – Forty groups recently took an important step towards opening new public charter schools in New York. Twelve have submitted full proposals to the SUNY Charter Schools Institute, while the State Education Department recently accepted 28 letters of intent.

These groups include a diverse array of teachers, community leaders and non-profit organizations located across the state: from Buffalo to Potsdam, and Oswego to Queens. Proposals were submitted in both charter-heavy communities and those with no charter schools at all.

Bill Phillips, president of the Northeast Charter Schools Network, made the following statement:

“With more than 90,000 students anticipated at charter schools this year, and another 50,000-plus names on waiting lists, New York families clearly want more public charter school options. The latest round of 40 applicants shows us that this demand remains strong.

“We look forward to supporting these groups as they take their ideas from proposal to reality. Every New York student deserves a great school, and charters play an important role in ensuring that happens.”
