Charter school proponents are buzzing a little bit today about some grants given to two charter schools in Denver over the week.
The Broomfield-based Charter School Growth Fund on Wednesday announced a pledge of $4 million to West Denver Prep and Denver School of Science and Technology charter schools.
West Denver Prep, which operates four middle schools, was awarded $2.25 million in order to expand to 12 schools serving 4,000 students in grades 6-12.
DSST received $1.8 million and plans to expand to four schools serving 4,500 students in grades 6-12 over the next 10 years.
“West Denver Prep and DSST exemplify CSGF’s focus on charter organizations with outstanding track records,” said Kevin Hall, chief executive of the charter growth fund.
