The Race To The Top Program
if school districts in MA would like to apply, the application would need to be submitted by midnight Wednesday 1/13/10.
approx. $19,000 possible available
MTA has signed off on the Memorandum of Understanding
36 districts have committed thus far to proceed
there was an indication of significant funding early on, but realistically $19,000 won't go very far.
The investment of accountability may not cover the amount
recommendation to not pursue at this time
the money would be for new initiatives
the bulk of the money would be targeted to under-performing districts (which we are not)
According to the latest ranking we are rated 1, the districts rated 4 or 5 would get the bulk of the money
vocational, charter and 36 public school districts have committed thus far
The funding and administrative support are unrealistic given our challenges with a level funded budgeted.
