New Schools Venture Fund Invests in 14 Up-and-Coming Schools

SLINGING THEM FORWARD: New Schools Venture Fund (NSVF) has chosen the 14 schools that will receive its Catapult 2015 investments, the first cohort of the Catapult program. NSVF announced the initiative this summer as part of its Innovative Schools strategy to create public schools that "emphasize personalized learning and student agency" and lead other schools to make similar positive changes. 

The investments either go to administrative teams for a year of planning to start a new school or to schools that opened this year that hope to sustain their models and further grow through research and development. The eight schools in the planning stage will receive $100,000, and the six previously launched schools will receive $200,000 over the next year. Applications for next year's investments open November 10th.
