The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education
Race to the Top Phase 2 Application
|To:||Members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education|
|From:||Mitchell D. Chester, Commissioner|
|Date:||May 14, 2010|
Phase 2 Race to the Top applications are due on June 1, one week after our Board meeting on May 25. With feedback and assistance from many corners, we believe we have made substantial progress in improving our application over the last two months. We are confident that the changes we have made to our Phase 1 proposal have strengthened our application considerably and will put Massachusetts in a strong position to win an award in Phase 2.
For your review I have included a detailed outline of the Phase 2 proposal and a side-by-side comparison of our Phase 1 and Phase 2 applications. The outline is a work in progress; we intend to provide you a more complete draft prior to the Board meeting.
At the meeting we will update you on substantive changes, if any, in the proposal since these documents were prepared and on the status of sign-on by district superintendents, union leaders, and school committee chairs. I welcome the Board's input and look forward to our discussion on May 25.
