Race to the Top Plans in Delaware Approved
The Delaware Department of Education has approved the Race to the Top plans of every school district in the state.
Secretary of Education Lillian Lowery has approved the plans for three years. Lowery will determine funding year-to-year based on performance.
The 19 school districts have been working over the past year on how to use the $18.4 million in federal grant money on reforms that are aligned to the state's goals. Lowery says each district rose to the challenge and came up with plans that address issues in their own district while adhering to the overall goals of improving student and teacher performance.
