The cross-agency team preparing Maine’s application for the federal Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge will host a second webinar on Sept. 29 to provide updates on the application process and solicit letters of support for the state’s proposal.
The online session takes place from 1 to 2 p.m.
During the session, Race to the Top team members will brief participants on the progress they’ve made preparing the competition application, outline the policy proposals they have in mind, and ask for letters of support for the undertaking.
The Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge is a $500 million competition among the states sponsored by the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services. Maine is eligible for up to $50 million in award funds to use to expand access to early childhood education for high-needs children and to improve the quality of existing programs.
