Disseminating Best Practices - A Primer for State Entity Grantees of the U.S. Department of Education’s Charter School Programs
State Entity (SE) grantees of the Charter School Programs are required to share best practices with charter schools and other public schools in their state as a component of their grant. This condition is meant to help improve struggling schools and local education agencies (LEAs) throughout the state.
This primer outlines best practices to ensure that SE grantees and their subgrantees’ best practices are shared with public schools throughout their state and beyond. It addresses two critical components to a systematic approach to best practice dissemination: 1) identifying charter school best practices and 2) sharing the best practices with the education community.
