Agenda Item #37
Race to the Top District Evaluation Systems Monitoring
The purpose of the Race to the Top District Evaluation Systems Monitoring grant is to provide sub-grants to all Race to the Top participating school districts to train school administrators on effective monitoring of the district’s teacher evaluation system. The sub-grant award allocation of $100,000 was determined by the Florida Department of Education based on the FTE count of student population. Brevard’s proposal will focus on building capacity through establishing a network of administrators and teachers to increase teacher understanding of the evaluation system, create a district wide collaborative culture, and increase inter-rater reliability.
The grant application was due to the Florida Department of Education on May 15, 2013 and was submitted with Superintendent’s approval. Upon notification of funding a board agenda item for consent after information will be submitted for acceptance of the award. A complete copy of the proposal is available in the Grant Development office.
Approve the writing and submission of the Race to the Top District Evaluation Systems Monitoring grant application.
