Visit To The District Of Columbia's Charter Schools Visit to the district of columbia's Charter schools. May 17, 1999 A Trip Report the nations first innercity public charter boarding school. It provides a nurturing environment http://www.aypf.org/tripreports/1999/tr051799.htm
Extractions: Community Academy Public Charter School The first school visited was The Community Academy Public Charter in Northwest, DC, with Fonda Sutton, the schools director and Kent Amos, founder of The Urban Family Institute and driving force behind the Academy. Amos gave the philosophical background for the schools creation, which comes from his experience with the violence and crime that claimed the lives of several of the children who he has mentored and taken into his family. Amos is committed to "creating a world where children plan for college, not for funerals." In his charter school, children are respected for their abilities, helped with special needs and encouraged to achieve. According to Amos, the school has to look at the substantive difference between how they educate a child and how they prepare him/her to be a citizen in their community. The Community Academy is a neighborhood-based, multiple campus charter that offers primary through secondary education. Next year they will add another site in another location within the city. Currently a Pre K-7 grade school, the Academy is preparing to accept classes of students that will bring enrollment to 4,000, up to grade twelve. A nine-member board of community members monitors the school. The school seeks to offer children a nurturing village experience by including social services and education to family members. Sponsors of the Academy hope to create a neighborhood in which "families have the resources necessary to realize their potential, individually and collectively." This goal, they believe will best allow a child to reach his/her full potential and become a responsible adult who actively pursues lifelong learning opportunities.

Extractions: The idea behind public charter schools is that parents, given a variety of public schools to choose from, will pick the schools they think best meet the academic needs of their children. This will create competition for students among public schools - charter and traditional - that will bring across-the-board improvements in public education. Public charter schools are organized as non-profit corporations and are freed from most of the rules that burden traditional public schools. In exchange for this freedom from central control, public charter schools are held accountable for improved student achievement. How a public charter school gets its students to learn is up to the school's board of trustees; whether student achievement has been sufficient is monitored by each school's chartering authority. Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia have passed public charter school laws, often in response to the demands of parents. Public charter schools are especially popular with inner-city parents, many of whose children have long been denied a decent education. In the District of Columbia, Kansas City, and Milwaukee, for example, between 10 percent and 15 percent of all public school children now attend public charter schools.

Extractions: Advocacy The SEED Foundation was awarded the charter for The SEED Public Charter School of Washington, D.C. in 1998 by the D.C. Public Charter School Board. Gaining the charter required both developing an education and business plan for a public boarding school and persuading the D.C. Public Charter School Board and federal government of the need for boarding school opportunities for D.C. children. In addition to securing the public charter, a large and successful component of The SEED Foundation's work has been to cultivate bi-partisan support for legislation providing public funds for public boarding schools. SEED has successfully lobbied for several pieces of legislation from the federal and District of Columbia governments. In the fall of 1997, The SEED Foundation successfully lobbied the United States Congress and the Council of the District of Columbia to appropriate additional operations funds for residential charter schools in the District of Columbia. Two years later, in the fall of 1999, the Foundation successfully lobbied to amend the charter funding allocation to provide additional facility and special needs funds for residential charter schools in the District of Columbia.
