Northeast Charter Schools Network Commends City for Finding Space for Four Charter Schools
 
Albany, NY – Four New York City charter schools that applied for more space are now guaranteed space in public school buildings. They are Success Academy Bronx 3, Success Academy Bed-Stuy Middle School, Bronx Charter School for Better Learning II, and Launch Expeditionary Learning Charter School.  Global Community Charter School was denied public space. The city will pay for private space for the school.
 
Northeast Charter Schools Network Interim President Kyle Rosenkrans issued the following statement:
"We applaud the mayor for doing the right thing and ensuring that the children of these schools will have a roof over their heads next year.
 
"This is a good step in the right direction for students in New York City’s charter schools. However, roughly half of the charter students in the state are still waiting for Albany to fix a flaw in the law that denies them funding for buildings.
"The state still has a long way to go until every public school student is funded fairly and we are committed to working with lawmakers to find a solution.”
