New York City opened its doors to its first public charter school in 1999. Since then, the sector has grown to include 216 campuses serving over 106,000 students in all five boroughs. Each campus adheres to their unique missions and deliverables of their charters, while being held accountable to state standards. Charter schools continue to provide children from underserved backgrounds opportunities to attend public schools with distinct curriculum, pedagogy, and school culture.  

Philanthropy New York’s Education Working Group, in collaboration with The Philanthropy Roundtable, is excited to host a discussion that dives deep into some of the innovations and documented successes of charters and how they are being shared across charter and district schools. Join leaders from charter management organizations and the donors supporting them for an insider’s view into some of the in-school practices – such as a commitment to teacher diversity, consistent teacher feedback, and a focus on character curriculum and college spirit – that charter networks believe boost morale and buy-in among teachers, students, and parents. The discussion will also cover how charter and district leaders can partner, share best practices, and strengthen opportunity for all kids, as well as where philanthropic investment has been most impactful.

  • Partnerships  that are sharing innovations between charters and districts
