Abstract: On May 22, 2012, the Secretary announced the Race to the Top District program, which is designed to build on the momentum of other Race to the Top competitions by encouraging bold, innovative reform at the local level. In FY 2012, the Department awarded approximately $383 million to 16 Race to the Top District grantees representing 55 local educational agencies (LEAs), with grants ranging from $10 to $40 million. Applications for the FY 2013 competition are currently under peer review and the Department plans to make awards in December 2013 for a total of approximately $120 million. FY 2013 grantees will utilize the same Annual Performance Report (APR) template as FY 2012 Race to the Top District grantees. In order to fulfill our responsibilities for programmatic oversight and public reporting, the Department has developed a Race to the Top District Annual Performance Report (APR) that is tied directly to the FY 2012 and FY 2013 Race to the Top District selection criteria and priorities previously PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22107 established and published in the Federal Register. The report is grounded in the key performance targets included in grantees approved Race to the Top District plans. Grantees will be required to report on their progress improving student outcomes and implementing personalized learning environments, including narrative sections on progress and key performance indicators. Each grantee district will submit a Race to the Top District APR on an annual basis. The first report for the 16 FY 2012 districts is anticipated to be collected during spring 2014 with FY 2013 grantees reporting for the first time in spring 2015. Districts will submit the narrative elements and quantitative measures via an online data collection platform that will then be converted into a transparent public display. Dated: April 15, 2014 .
