By Klint Willert - Marshall Schools superintendent , Marshall Independent

In late May, all public schools and charter schools in the United States learned about a new grant competition and opportunity for school districts. United States Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, announced The Race to the Top District (RTT-D) competition. The RTT-D competition is a competitive grant designed to support bold, locally directed improvements in teaching and learning that will directly improve student achievement and teacher effectiveness. The cornerstone of the grant is the development of an individual learning plan for each student that matches a student's goals and dreams with specific learning outcomes in the school. Additionally, a key element of the grant is significant investments in teacher training and staff development.
