12 Charter School Networks across the country team up

teamAchievement First, a network of 25 non-profit, college-preparatory, public charter schools in Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island, today partnered with YES Prep and Aspire Public Schools to announce that 12 public, charter school networks have joined the Charter Network Accelerator. The program is focused on helping experienced leaders, with an emphasis on leaders of color, design and scale their school networks, according to a release.

The 12 public charter management organizations (CMO) selected as members of the inaugural cohort represent nearly 20,000 students at 45 schools in 11 states, according to a release. Together with lead partners Achievement First, YES Prep and Aspire Public Schools, the diverse team will also help address an issue Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has called one of the biggest challenges to effective school reform: a lack of diversity among the nation’s teachers, the release said.

Through the Charter Network Accelerator, charter management organizations achieving strong results with historically underserved populations will participate in bi-monthly learning sessions where leaders receive training in the skills required for managing a rapidly growing organization, and explore options for teacher and leader pipelines, CMO structure, and core academic programs.

FUSE institutions in Hartford and Bridgeport are among the participants, the release said.
