2013 Preliminary Review/Approval Round 1-18 Full Applications Accepted For Review
Eighteen Round 1 Full Applications were accepted for review panel evaluation. The review process will continue through May, culminating in capacity interviews with founding groups and initial boards of trustees of proposed schools that meet required criteria. New charter schools that are approved through this process will come to the Board of Regents for consideration in November or December 2013. Schools that are issued charters will begin to serve students in the 2014-2015 school year.
Of a total 49 submitted Letters of Intent, 27 were accepted and invited to move to the Full Application phase of the process. Of the accepted Letters of Intent, 20 schools are proposed for New York City and others are proposed for Yonkers, Buffalo, East Ramapo CSD, Florida Union Free School District, Peekskill City School District, and Rochester.
Full applications are due to the NYSED Charter School Office on March 15, 2013. New charter schools that are approved through this process will come to the Board of Regents in November or December 2013, for school launch in 2014.
