North Central ESD Superintendant Critical of Federal Grant Process

May 21, 2010

Are small rural school

districts at a disadvantage when it comes to competing for Federal education reform dollars? One of North Central

Washington’s top school officials thinks so. Monday was the deadline for districts to say if they would

participate in the so-called Race to the Top grant process. Over 250 of our state’s 295 school districts have

signed on to the state’s application for 250 million dollars in Federal funding. Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair

spoke with North Central Educational Service District Superintendant Rich McBride who’s region encompasses 4

counties and 29 mostly rural school districts . .
