OneWorld Answers Questions about Funding of Charter, Intra-district...

This article titled: Magnet Schools Attract Mobile Families has generated many questions about how the New Haven Magnet Schools system works, and what are the funding levels for regular public schools, Lighthouse schools, Intra-district and Inter-district magnet schools, Project Choice and Charter schools. 

OneWorld appreciates all those who have taken the time to post comments and ask thoughtful questions. There is a great deal of information on the New Haven Public Schools web site at:  However, we have sought to find specific answers (from various authorities) to questions asked of us.  Answers to questions about the funding of Charter Schools are also posted to the article on the New Haven Independent web site linked above. 

In terms of public school funding, we got answers from the State Department of Education (SDE), the CT Legislature, and the New Haven Public Schools (NHPS) Central Office.   Many people are asking what exactly are Lighthouse Schools, and how long have they been around as a part of the NHPS?

Lighthouse Schools are a part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Federal Program; they are high performing schools within the NHPS District.  Intra-district magnets and Lighthouse schools are for New Haven resident students only.  Inter-district magnet schools are for all who are eligible to attend school in New Haven.  More detailed answers can be found at our Blog site at:
