Want to help shape Florida's Race to the Top?
The Florida Department of Education is looking for volunteers to serve on eight committees aimed at implementing the state's Race to the Top plan.
You don't have to be an educator to serve. You can be a parent, or just a person with an interest in education, to qualify for the positions, which will be doled out to represent all regions of Florida. For certain committees, though, you would be expected to have specific technical expertise.
The committees are: Standards Instructional Teacher Tool, Formative and Interim Assessment Design, District-Developed Student Assessments for Instructional Effectiveness, Portal-Dashboards-Reports, Local Systems, Student Growth Implementation Work Group and Teacher and Leader Prep Implementation Work Group. More details on each here.
The application deadline is Oct. 1. Want to go for it? Find the application here.
