DOE soon accepting charter school applications The Department of Education (DOE) will soon be accepting applications for approval of new charter schools to open in August or September 2007. The application period is from Nov. l, 2005 through Jan. 3, 2006. Charter schools are independent public schools offered as an alternative to traditional public schools. An independent board of directors governs each charter school. Charter schools must be nonsectari- an and non-discriminatory. Since charter schools receive federal, state and local funding, they cannot charge tuition. Each charter school's curriculum is required to address Delaware's content standards. Students who attend charter schools are required to participate in the Delaware Student Testing Program (DSTP) examination. Charter schools are also included in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) school accounta- bility ratings. A review of all submitted applications will be con- ducted by DOE following the deadline. If the appli- cation is found to meet all .required criteria, the Secretary of Education will submit the application to the State Board of Education for final approval. ........ there are 13 charter schools operating in Delaware: Newark Charter School; Academy of Dover; MOT Charter School; Campus Community School; Charter School of Wilmington; Delaware Military Academy; East Side Charter School; Thomas A. Edison Charter School; Kuumba Academy Charter School; Marion T. Academy Charter School; Positive Outcomes Charter School; Providence Creek Academy Charter School; and Sussex Academy of Arts and Sciences. Combined, student enrollment in all charter schools is near 7,000 students. Four additional new charter schools are scheduled to open in September 2006. Application packets are available. For an applica- tion or for further assistance, contact Larry Gabbert at 302-739-4629. Additional information is also available on the DOE website at http ://www. doe. state .de .us.
