Race to the Top District Competition 2013

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) Race to the Top District (RTTT-D) Competition provides $120 million in grant funding for Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) to develop personalized learning opportunities for students to close the achievement gap.

On August 6, 2013, the ED announced it had finalized the application for the 2013 Race to the Top District competition, providing $120 million in competitive grant funding for local educational agencies (LEAs). Among the requirements an LEA must meet in order to apply is the requirement that it provide both to the State and to its mayor (or comparable official) at least 10 business days to comment, with comments included in the LEA's application. If the State or the mayor declines to comment, the LEA must provide evidence that each had 10 business days in which to do so. The LEA may, at its option, offer a response to comments.

At this time, it is the intent of the State to decline review of or comment on individual LEA applications that are submitted. However, the State assumes that LEA applications approved in this competition meet state and federal law and do not require state-level or statewide activities.

If you are planning to apply, and need to submit your application to the State for review, please contact Erika Webb-Hughes, Federal Policy Liaison, by phone at 916-319-0650, or by e-mail at RTTT-Dapps@cde.ca.gov

Please submit all applications for the required 10-day review by the State in PDF format by e-mail at RTTT-Dapps@cde.ca.gov.
