DC Schools to Share $75 Million in Federal Race to the Top Grants
The award is the result of a joint application submitted by D.C. public charter schools, DCPS, OSSE and the State Board of Education. D.C. is one of 19 applicants in the second round of the competition.
“This is exciting to be able to get this grant and it is gratifying to know that the funding will help schools as they work to become high-achieving schools,” said Josephine Baker, executive director of the DC Public Charter School Board. “Without this collaborative effort with DCPS, OSSE and the State Board of Education, we could not have been successful.”
