Charter Schools Program Grant

In September 2023, the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) was awarded a $55.5 million federal Charter Schools Program (CSP) grant to support Louisiana’s charter school movement. Through the Louisiana Public Charter Schools Program (LPCSP), the LDOE will catalyze charter growth in other high-need communities to meet insistent parental demand for these schools. Over the five-year project period, LDOE will support the addition of over 5,000 seats at 25 new, expanding, or replicating charter schools that meet grant objectives and priorities.
