HISD Wins Race To The Top Grant, Will Implement Linked Learning

Houston ISD learned today, Dec. 17, that it has won nearly $30 million in the U.S. Department of Education’s Race to the Top district competition. The announcement was made at noon by Education Secretary Arne Duncan at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C. HISD Supt. Terry Grier said the award acknowledges the district’s work “to personalize learning to each student.” The funds will go to “Linked Learning,” a new model of teaching from elementary through high school that enables students to begin early college and career readiness through project-based learning. Youngsters move on to exploring aptitudes and life interests in middle school, and focus on career academies in high school.
