Message from the Superintendent:
For over a year, Bay District Schools has been working on the now well-known Race to the Top federally-funded grant and initiative. There has been an enormous amount of energy and time devoted to making the RTTT grant a collaborative effort among all stakeholders – including teachers, administrators, and union representatives. Thus far, our primary focus has been on establishing new evaluation instruments for teachers and administrators that incorporate a student achievement element. These new instruments will encourage our teachers and administrators to become more effective by rewarding those who reach specified levels of student growth and success.
I hope you use this website as a resource to better understand BDS’s RTTT goals and strategies. I encourage you to check back often as we continue to update you on the work being done in the various RTTT committees.
