By Martha Woodall, Inquirer Staff Writer

The Philadelphia School Partnership will announce Friday that it is awarding a $1.5 million grant to Wissahickon Charter School in Nicetown to help it expand.

A year ago, the Philadelphia School Reform Commission gave the charter school, which has an environmental focus, permission to add a second K-8 campus in 2014.

Kristina Littell, Wissahickon’s co-chief executive officer, said the school’s second site will be located on Washington Lane in East Germantown.
