Get the Funding You Need for the Technology You Want
Now that we’ve summarized the requirements for Title IV, Part B funding, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, let’s tackle another U.S. Department of Education fund: Race to the Top. Find out whether this is a fund you can qualify for. Classroom technology may be within your reach.
Race to the Top
Race to the Top (which may be abbreviated various ways, including RttT, RTTT, RTT, and R2T) is a program designed to advance reform in K–12 education. This reform happens through targeted initiatives in state and local school districts (see Key Requirements, below). Additional goals of Race to the Top are to improve student achievement, close achievement gaps, improve high school graduation rates, and ensure post-secondary success. Awards will go to States that are leading the way with ambitious yet achievable plans for implementing coherent, compelling, and comprehensive education reform.
The key requirements for this funding are as follows:
- Standards and Assessments. Adopt standards and assessments that prepare students to succeed in college and the workplace, and to compete in the global economy.
- Data Systems to Inform Instruction. Build data systems that measure student growth and success, and that inform teachers and principals about how they can improve instruction.
- Low-Performing Schools. Raise achievement in low-performing schools.
- Phase 4 Competition, Race to the Top District (RttT-D). Foster personalized learning.
