The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools honors the public charter management organization that has demonstrated the best academic outcomes, particularly for low-income students and students of color.
The finalists for the 2017 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools are DSST Public Schools in Colorado, Harmony Public Schools in Texas, and Success Academy Charter Schools in New York. The winner will receive $250,000 to support college-readiness programs for its students. The winner will be announced at the National Charter School Conference in Washington, D.C. on June 12.
The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation is partnering with the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools to present the 2017 award.
First awarded in 2012, The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools is designed to recognize the best practices of successful public charter management organizations so that all public school systems can learn from them.
