CHARTER ASSOCIATION CONGRATULATES BROAD PRIZE FINALISTS,  INCLUDING NEW YORK CITY'S SUCCESS ACADEMY CHARTER SCHOOLS 

Albany, NY – The Northeast Charter Schools Network today released the following congratulatory statement to the schools named finalists for the Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools, including New York City's Success Academy Charter Schools. The $250,000 Broad Prize will be awarded to one of the finalists at the National Charter Schools Conference on June 12. 

Northeast Charter Schools Network CEO Janeene Freeman said, "This week we mark National Charter Schools Week as charter schools across the nation celebrate the movement's successes and milestones. In that spirit, NECSN congratulates the Broad Prize finalists, including New York City's Success Academy Charter Schools, which serve thousands of city students and help set them on a path toward academic success. Congratulations to all of the educators and committed families and students who help make these schools stand out."
NECSN also congratulates the other two finalists, DSST Public Schools in Colorado and Harmony Public Schools in Texas. 

The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools is awarded annually to the charter management organization (CMO) that has the best academic outcomes, particularly for low-income students and students of color. This year’s finalists have been chosen from among 39 of the country’s largest CMOs by a review board of national education experts, including former Education Secretary John King.
