Racing to the Top to Personalize Learning

Racing to the Top to Personalize Learning | Personalize Learning (#plearnchat) |

The new Race to the Top District (RTT-D) competition means that a district must address Absolute Priority 1 and identify one of the Absolute Priorities 2-5 that applies for the LEA or a consortium of LEAs. Absolute Priority 1 focuses on creating personalized learning environments. What does that mean for you as a teacher, a school, or a district?


The four core educational assurance areas in Race to the Top - District competition is to create student-centered learning environment(s) that are designed to:

1. significantly improve teaching and learning through the personalization of strategies, tools, and supports for teachers and students that are aligned with college- and career-ready standards;

2. increase the effectiveness of educators, and expand student access to the most effective educators in order to raise student achievement;

3. decrease the achievement gap across student groups;

4. and increase the rates at which students graduate from high school prepared for college and careers.


The RTT-D competition is for LEAs that have the leadership and vision to move beyond the one-size-fits all models, are concerned about inequity for their diverse student population, and are looking at student-focused approaches. Technology levels the playing field for learners, yet just putting technology in the hands of teachers and learners isn’t enough. To be college- and career-ready and to raise the achievement gap across all groups of learners, learners need to know how they learn best and teachers need to understand how their roles will change.
