August 6, 2012 The Charter Schools Program (CSP) at the U.S. Department of Education is seeking peer reviewers to read and evaluate discretionary grant applications for the 2012 Charter School Program Exemplary Collaboration Awards competition. This new grant program is designed to encourage high-quality charter schools to partner with non-chartered public schools and non-chartered LEAs to share and transfer best educational and operational practices, and to disseminate information about such practices. The CSP provides financial assistance for the planning, program design, and initial implementation of public charter schools; evaluation of the effects of charter schools; and dissemination of information about charter schools and successful practices in charter schools.

If you would like to be considered as a peer reviewer for the CSP, please email a copy of your current resume to by August 7, 2012. Peer reviewers with expertise in at least one of the following areas, are encouraged to apply:

  • State Educational Agency (SEA) charter school program grant administration

  • High-quality charter school start-up and expansion
