Delaware school districts are putting forth their plans and goals for reform-based innovations as part of the Race to the Top initiative.
Delaware was one of the first two states to win funding in the competitive federal program, and was slated to receive $119-million. State Education Secretary Lillian Lowery recently approved the plans of all 19 districts, which came about through the efforts of school administrators, teachers, parents and community leaders. The state maintains that each plan is individualized to reflect the needs of each district, while at the same time meeting the statewide goals for reform strategies. Plans were approved for three years, with funding to be allocated year-by-year based on performance.
