NewSchools Launches 2016 Catapult Grants

MAKIN' IT RAIN: On November 10, CEO Stacey Childress and the entire NewSchools Venture Fund team announced the launch of Catapult 2016, a program intended to provide teams launching schools in fall 2017 with funding, support and mentorship. This marks the second annual Catapult application process, after debuting it back in July. At the moment, Childress reports that the program is aimed at designers of early-stage charter and district schools, while networks that are working to redesign an existing school are not eligible for Catapult. However, she adds that "while this isn't a redesign program... we're [in the works of] creating one."
