Race to the Top grant update
Submitted By New Haven Unified School District
As one of only 16 nationwide winners in the U.S. Department of EducationÕs Race to the Top-District (RTTT-D) competition, New Haven Unified is receiving more than $29 million over a 4-? year period, to personalize student learning, improve student achievement and educator effectiveness, close achievement gaps, and prepare all students to succeed in college and careers. The DistrictÕs RTTT-D Director, former Kitayama Elementary Principal Lisa Metzinger, recently updated staff of progress applying grant funds.
A Scope of Work (SOW) has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The SOW is a complete picture of all of the projects, activities, and tasks to accomplish the districtÕs plan and goals, aligned with the grant application and budget. Within each project there are several activities. Each activity has deliverables and milestones. Project leads, Suzan Lee-Young, Melvin Easley, and Lori Valdes have prepared the Scope of Work.
The approved Scope of Work (SOW) is posted on the district web site under the Race to the Top section (http://www.nhusd.k12.ca.us/node/1808).
