Race to the Top

In August 2010, RI was awarded a $75 million Race To The Top Grant. The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) will be using these funds to design and implement five ‘systems of support’ transforming how the Department of Education serves individual school districts. The ultimate goal of each system is to improve student achievement, ensuring that all students are ready for success in college, careers, and life.The five systems of support are:

  • Standards & Curriculum
  • Instructional Management System
  • Educator Effectiveness
  • Human Capital Development
  • School Transformation and Innovation

Teams of administrators and teachers from North Smithfield School Department are currently developing our Race To The Top ‘Scope of Work’ to submit to RIDE outlining our actions and commitments. We have exciting work ahead of us and will keep you posted with progress!
