Federal officials have approved plans by 26
Georgia school districts participating in the state’s “Race to the
Top” grant.

The approval means the districts will soon receive their first
infusion of money from the $400 million the state won last year.Teresa McCartney, who oversees the four-year grant program for
Georgia, said the districts will get about $32 million this year,
much of which is going to teacher training.

Georgia was one of 11 applicants – 10 states and Washington,
D.C. – to win money from the $4 billion “Race to the Top” grant
competition last year. The program is designed to get states to
adopt innovative measures to improve student achievement and turn
around low-performing schools.
