In fifteen major cities, charter schools and districts are laying down arms and have signed a collaboration compact to come to the table to figure out how to share resources and responsibility to serve all students equitably. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has funded a multi-year initiative to support the design and implementation of District-Charter Collaboration Compacts. CRPE is helping these and other portfolio school districts figure out how to reinvent their central office structures so that charter schools can become a normal part of a district's efforts to better meet student needs. But some of these efforts go much deeper than others, and the impact on student learning remains to be seen.
The following cities have signed collaboration compacts:
|Hartford||New Orleans||Sacramento||Central Falls, RI|
|Los Angeles||New York City||Spring Branch, TX|
