The recent success of Delaware and Tennessee in winning Race to the Top grants doesn't mean the state competition is over. In fact, deadlines for Race to the Top, Phase 2 are rapidly approaching.
Applications for Phase 2 are due on June 1, 2010. To help states as they prepare their proposals and to continue the nationwide dialogue on education reform, the Department of Education has made all Phase 1 applications, peer reviewers' comments, and scores available on its website; videos of states' presentations will be posted as well.
The Department is making one change to the rules for the Phase 2 competition. To fund as many strong applications as possible, the Department of Education is requiring states' budgets to be within the ranges that were suggested in the original notice.
