October 29, 2010 The release of the 2010-2015 Public Charter Schools Grant Program (PCSGP) online application will be delayed. The application is still in development and will require further testing before release. The Charter Schools Division of the California Department of Education (CDE) anticipates this process will require two additional weeks from the previously announced release date; the new release date is November 15, 2010. If the application is ready for use before this date, the CDE will issue a formal announcement of such and open the application for public use. Please note that this will not delay the release of funds for continuing grantees from the previous grant cycle, nor will it delay the release of funds for new grantees that would have applied on or after November 1.
To coincide with the launch of the 2010-2015 PCSGP application, the Charter Schools Division will host an informational webinar at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 4, 2010. This webinar will provide guidance on the 2010-2015 PCSGP grant cycle. Topics covered will include:
- Eligibility criteria for the 2010-2015 PCSGP grant
- A walk-through for how to fill out and file an application for funding
- Requirements of the grant
- Capacity building activities and the Work Plan (an integral part of the 2010-2015 PCSGP grant cycle)
- A brief overview of the 2010-2015 PCSGP Request for Applications
It is not a requirement of the application process to attend this webinar, but attendance is strongly encouraged for those interested in applying for funds. Information provided will assist in the successful completion and submission of an application for funding, and will surely increase the likelihood of approval.
The login information for this webinar is below. There is no need to pre-register, and all interested parties are invited to attend. Please note that the Charter Schools Division staff will not be available to provide technical assistance for logging in to the webinar on the day of the webinar, so it is strongly advised that interested parties test their system early for compatibility with the webinar software.
