North Carolina is one of only 12 recipients of the 2010 federal Race to the Top (RttT) grants, bringing nearly $400 million to the state's public school system for use over the next four years. This website is designed to be your authoritative source for technical documentation of North Carolina's initiative. RttT is a collaborative effort across the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, and guided by the State Board of Education and the Governor's Education Transformation Commission. The RttT Organizational Chart (pdf, 226kb) highlights members of this collaborative effort.
Receipt of this grant, designed to spur public school innovation, is a key component of North Carolina's work to continue its momentum for school improvement.
