The U.S. Department of Education has released the final application for the Race to the Top District program. With the grant's emphases on individualized learning, college readiness, and college enrollment, College Summit is an ideal partner to work with an LEA or consortium interested in applying for RTT-D funds. Our core services are closely aligned with the Absolute Priorities and the 4 Educational Assurance Areas, and our track record for success is ideally suited to help an applicant compete for a grant. This document highlights how a partnership with College Summit will help a school district apply for, secure, and implement an RTT-D Grant.
Rising college enrollment rates are hard data that administrators can use to demonstrate what they are doing right for their students. Providing each and every student with what he or she needs to get to college ensures that all students’ potential can be realized.
College Summit provides districts with a strategy and tools to transform college enrollment throughout the district. Equipping students, teachers, counselors, principals and administrators alike, College Summit builds your capacity to send more of your students to post-secondary education.
Teachers dedicate their lives to equipping students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Increasingly, academic skills are necessary but not sufficient for a student to enroll in college. Each student needs the structure of a post-secondary plan.
College Summit provides such a structure by giving teachers and administrators sophisticated methods and materials to ensure that every student who can make it in college makes it to college.
