New Charter Schools for CT

The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck (PCLB) Foundation is excited to support an initiative to grow the charter school sector in the state of Connecticut.

On December 1, 2022, submissions are due to the CT State Department of Education (CSDE) in response to a recently-released Request for Proposals (RFP) for opening new charter schools in the state.

PCLB has committed to supporting those who respond to the RFP through a round of project-specific grants to promising applicants. PCLB has awarded initial grants and is in discussion with partner organizations to ensure high-quality, diverse, and committed groups respond to the RFP.

For more information, please review the New Charter Schools for CT Program Guidelines.
