A charter school affiliated with Florida State University is building an online community to support the state’s more than 500 charter schools.
The site, developers say, will serve as a hub for curriculum, instruction and assessment assistance tailored for charter schools. The hub will build off the current CPALMS site, which offers the same types of support and resources to traditional public schools.
“They can see that other people are having the same challenges and share solutions,” Lynn Wicker, director of the Florida State University Schools, said in a statement. “It really won’t matter where you are geographically in the state: You’ll have the same access to the same resources.”
The project is funded by a $500,000 grant from the Florida Department of Education. More details here.
