Funds to support the opening of 19 new charter schools in Wisconsin for the 2013-14 school year are among those announced in a new round of federally funded grants totaling $12.8 million.

The Milwaukee-area schools on the list include: Rocketship Southside Community Prep, $250,000; Carmen Northwest, $250,000; MTEC School of Environmental Science, $250,000; The Banner School of Milwaukee, $250,000; Universal Academy of the College Bound, $250,000; and Woodland’s East, $200,000.

In addition to grants for new charter schools, which total $3.9 million for the first-year operation, the awards include 19 planning grants, totaling $3.8 million; 21 implementation renewal grants, totaling $4.2 million for charter schools in the second year of operation; three dissemination grants, totaling $375,000 to support program sharing activities; and four dissemination renewal grants, totaling $500,000 that support continued outreach activities by established charter schools.

“Charter schools are exploring different instructional strategies, site-based management techniques and other innovations to discover what will work best for their students and communities,” said state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers, in a news release. “Federal charter grant funds are helping educators create the next generation of quality charter schools that provide our students with innovative, rigorous and relevant instruction.”
