OVERVIEW: Turning Around North Carolina’s Lowest-Achieving Schools (TALAS)
In 2010, North Carolina earned one of 12 Race to the Top (RttT) grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Education. In part, these funds have been available to stimulate and strengthen states’ efforts to turn around their lowest achieving schools. In its successful application, North Carolina’s detailed a plan to scale up support for its lowest-achieving schools by leveraging RttT funds to significantly expand its successful turnaround and transformation work already underway across the state. With this award, North Carolina is able to enhance the efforts of the Agency’s District and School Transformation division to implement a comprehensive program that targets low performing-schools and responds to state and federal legislation and requirements, as well as North Carolina’s own judicial and executive direction.
