Race to the Top Survey

To:All Interested Parties
From:Education Commissioner Mitchell D. Chester, Ed.D.
Date:November 23, 2009


The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is conducting a survey to support the development of the state's "Race to the Top" grant proposal, and we are very eager to gather input from education stakeholders throughout Massachusetts. This survey is meant to help us understand what you see as the most important projects that the state should include in its Race to the Top proposal, and what would be most helpful in your districts, schools, and classrooms.

Race to the Top (RTTT) is a competitive education reform program enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which presents an important opportunity for Massachusetts. Recipient states stand eligible to recieve an unprecedented level of funding to pursue transformative priorities. Massachusetts is poised to receive up to $200 million. If we are successful, Massachusetts will have an opportunity to make progress in key areas that might not otherwise be possible. For more information on Race to the Top, visit

If you have any questions, please email the Department at If you have questions about this survey, please email

This survey should take approximately 15 minutes, and must be completed by December 1. Please respond and pass the link on to others who have an interest in this important initiative. Thank you again for your participation.
