Charter Schools in Action
One of our goals at the National Alliance is to increase funding for the federal Charter Schools Program so that we can grow the number of high-quality charter schools around the country. To demonstrate the CSP’s impact on schools, we feature a school each month that has received CSP funding.
DeLaSalle Education Center in Kansas City, Missouri, is the state’s only charter high school exclusively serving high-risk, urban core students. DeLaSalle offers mental health, addiction recovery, parenting, and concentrated remediation supports to help students ages 14 to 20 achieve academic success. A $300,000 CSP grant allowed DeLaSalle to buy laptops, desktops, and Smart Boards and expand the use of online learning software to inspire the school’s tech-savvy students.
