Race to the Top Winners Submit “Scopes of Work” – EdWeek Blog

The Silverback Team

Jan 4, 2013 – In Michele McNell’s piece in Ed Week today we learn more about the specifics of the RTTT-D winners and the proposals for improving education in these specific schools and districts. Silverback Learning Mileposts allows educators to easily and effectively create personalized learning environments for students, so we are particularly interested in the “Scopes of Work” proposals coming from the winners. The rural district winner in Kentucky, Green River Educational Cooperative, caught our eye:

“The group’s winning application, worth $40 million, has four key components: making students more responsible for their own educational success, helping teachers gear their instruction to competency-based learning, creating more personalized learning, and working with preschools to improve kindergarten readiness.”

We congratulate all the winners and look forward to following their successes as they implement these important school improvements which place students and personalized learning first.
