The U.S. Department of Education’s new Race to the Top-District (RTT-D) Grant Competition pushes districts to think even more deeply about how to leverage family, school, and community partnerships that support student learning. This competition, more than previous RTT competitions, enables local communities to work with their districts on developing community school strategies that create the conditions for teaching and learning. This is a tremendous opportunity for community schools. Come learn more about the RTT-D competition, how it aligns with community school principles, and hear from district and community leaders about how they have developed district-community partnerships that are required throughout the grant competition.

  •          Curtiss Sarikey, Associate Superintendent, Family, Schools and Community Partnerships, Oakland Unified School District
