Auburn School District awarded $561,706 grant
For the Reporter
The Auburn School District was awarded $561,706 as part of the Road Map Race to the Top grant. The funds will be used for teacher leadership.
The executive committee for the Road Map Region Race to the Top grant issued preliminary awards of $2.9 million in investment funds for Project 1 (teaching and leading) as part of the second round of awards to districts participating in the consortium.
Project 1 creates a fund that districts may access to build teacher and principal content knowledge, to assist in the creation of personalized learning environments in the region's high need schools. The emphasis of this fund is on scalable, high-impact improvements in math, science and ELL instruction as well as teacher/principal leadership.
An independent panel was assembled to score the proposals and make recommendations to the executive committee. Award recommendations were made based on points received as well as other factors that impact the region such as return on investment and scalability.
