The purpose of the Public Charter Schools Teacher Compensation Grant is to help individual charter schools, also referred to as charter local education agencies (LEAs), recruit and retain high-quality teachers in the increasingly competitive market in the District of Columbia. A total of $8.7 million will be made available to charter LEAs for teacher compensation. Compensation may be provided in the form of bonuses, stipends, salary increases, professional development, or other in-kind compensation. Applicants shall apply for funds based on the number of students enrolled. Each charter LEA is eligible to receive $300 per enrolled student.
