Department of Education Releases Charter Schools Program Non-Regulatory Guidance

The US Department of Education released Charter Schools Program Non-Regulatory Guidance for charter schools that receive federal funds allowing them to use weighted lotteries in admissions in favor of disadvantaged students as long as lotteries are permissible under a state’s charter school law.  “Disadvantaged” students include students who are economically disadvantaged, students with disabilities, migrant students, limited English proficient students, neglected or delinquent students, and homeless students.  Federal startup funds are provided to charter schools in order to evaluate and expand the number of high quality charter schools across the nation.
