CCS Transformation News

The Coshocton City Schools’ staff is a unified group of educators focused on student achievement, student growth, and student preparation. Therefore, the staff maintains engagement in continuous improvement supported through various transformation initiatives. These transformations are not limited to brick and mortar, as with our elementary building project. They reflect shared commitment to transforming the manner in which our schools and staff:

  • Meet the needs of individual students, all students
  • Develop and conduct our professional learning communities
  • Develop and support great teachers and leaders
  • Prepare our students for a 21st century career and/or college pathway
 
WHAT IS RACE TO THE TOP - RttT?


Race to the Top
, RttT, is a $4.35 billion United States Department of Education program designed to spur reforms in state and local district K-12 education. It is funded by the ED Recovery Act as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and was announced by President Barack Obama on July 24, 2009.

State applications for funding were scored on selection criteria:

Great Teachers and Leaders

State Success Factors

Standards and Assessments

General Selection

Data Systems to Support Instruction


The Result

Many states took actions to make their applications more competitive, and OHIO was one of these states. Unfortunately, OHIO was not accepted in the first round of states to be recognized and awarded RttT dollars. Undeterred, OHIO revised its application, represented its updated plan, and it was accepted in the 2nd round.

Coshocton City Schools application for participation was part of the initial and second round applications. Many teachers and the administration worked long hours developing a plan that would transform the district’s programs not to teach the students for today, but rather to teach for the future.
