This morning the Department of Education released the list of finalists for the first round of Race to the Top funding, and California isn’t on the list. The state can apply for future rounds of funding, with Round 2 applications due June 1.
Individual districts can also apply for innovation grants, and my understanding is that we (SFUSD) have applied for one. Stay tuned.
Given the heavy investment SFUSD has made in immersion, is there scope for federal $$$ for innovation based on that?
