Grant Objective: Strategic planning.
The federal government has initiated a competitive bid process for its ~$4 Billion Race to the Top (RTT) fund. The fund seeks to bring about a positive sea change in how governments (federal, state and local) work together to make fundamental improvements in public education. States across the country will submit applications for large scale grants that will accelerate initiatives to dramatically improve student outcomes. SGP has partnered with national and local funders to help Massachusetts refine its strategic plan in order to facilitate education reform in the state and support its efforts to secure RTT funds.
