TPS Race to the TopFive years ago, Toledo Pubic Schools was the recipient of federal funds that are earmarked to implement national standards, use data to drive instruction, support great teachers and leaders and turnaround the lowest achieving schools. The nearly $11 million that was allocated to the district through the Race to the Top grant has allowed district leaders to prepare teachers to implement the new standards, have data easily accessible at the building and classroom level, to introduce and implement performance based evaluations for teachers and administrators and implement research based interventions at high-needs schools. The program for TPS will end on June 30. For more information, please visit the Ohio Department of Education's website:
