Race To The Top

Race To The Top is a competitive, education grant designed to spur innovation to improve: standards, assessments, data-systems, teachers and leaders, evaluation systems, professional development and low-performing schools.

RTTT is based on a four year funding plan with funding being determined on successful achievement year to year.
