Where are Race to the Top Dollars Headed?

July 12th, 2011

Category: News, Policy and Practice

The Delaware Department of Education recently approved all 19 districts’ Race to the Top plans, which reveal their priorities and stipulate how they will use their funds to increase performance in these areas. 

An initial analysis of the plans yields a couple data points, including:

Each districts’ approach is unique and represents their best thinking on how they can meet the needs of the students they serve.  Sample initiatives include establishing an International Baccalaureate program at a high school, building community partnerships to provide students with project-based learning opportunities, or provide students access to online coursework in order to better prepare them for college and/or career.  

We look forward to digging into the plans further, highlighting the bold work that will be underway throughout the state, and working with all interested stakeholders to ensure that these are implemented with fidelity in order to meet the state’s ambitious goals outlined in our winning application.
