PSP makes $10.5 million grant to five new charter schools

A mother becomes emotional as her daughter is named first on the 9th-grade waiting list at MaST Community Charter School. 

The Philadelphia School Partnership will provide $10.5 million in startup grants to five new charter schools that were approved to open for the 2016-17 year.

PSP will provide $3.3 million to Mastery Charter Schools to open Gillespie, a K-6 campus in North Philadelphia that plans eventually to enroll 588 students – giving admissions preference to students living in the Simon Gratz catchment area.

Students at Gillespie would naturally matriculate into Gratz, a grade 7-12 Renaissance school run by Mastery.

Mastery says it now intends to postpone Gillespie's opening until 2017-18. The charter is also pursuing operations of Germantown's Wister Elementary through the Renaissance process.

KIPP will receive $1.6 million to boost its opening of a new West Philadelphia elementary serving 375 students, offering a channel to an existing West Philly KIPP middle school.

Freire Charter will get $1.9 million as it opens TECH Freire, a North Philadelphia-based high school serving 580 students with a focus on computer programming and entrepreneurship. TECH Freire is to give admissions preference to children living in the Strawberry Mansion catchment.

MaST will receive $1.9 million to open a new charter school in lower Northeast Philadelphia that plans to grow to 1,250 students.

PSP will also give a $1.7 million grant to Independence Charter to open a new K-8 school enrolling 900 students – giving preference to children who live in the West Philadelphia catchments of Sayre, Bartram, and Overbrook High Schools.

jerry's charters.  he campaigned hard for the cigarette tax.

A bipartisan coalition of state lawmakers forced the end of that moratorium with an amendment added to the legislation that authorized Philadelphia to hike its tax on cigarettes.

Typical PSP move.

This is corporate welfare, plain and simple. PSP would be more credible if they donated exclusively to real public schools. Why can'st these funds be used to revive the schools that Hite is handing over to the colonial charters? Additionally, am I worng in reading the photo preceeding this article as an editorial endorsement of PSP?

Submitted by Annoy (not verified) on December 3, 2015 8:36 am

Note charters are getting considerable funds to improve the physical buildings and provide supplies.  Imagine if public schools received the same?  Under Hite/SRC/PSP rule, only select schools provide for students.  They damn the public schools and therefore the students.

PSP isn't hiding it's corporate intention in the least, now. I think it's unethical to give such large sums of monies to charters while public schools are starving. It's going to be interesting to see if the PSP will give such large sums to community schools...

Philadelphia Academies was "awarded" $1.2 million dollars last year by the PSP. Lisa Nutter is the head of Philadelphia Academies. This is not hard to figure out.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will hopefully avoid the fiasco that was the bane of the Galaxy Note 7. With the Korean giant looking to recoup its multi-billion dollar losses, we have created a wishlist of the features which will be seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. We are waiting with baited breath the release of the new device.
