In February 2013 the nine Phase 1 Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) Program grantee States submitted the first Annual Performance Reports (APRs) for the grant program. The APRs document progress made during the 1st year of grant implementation (January 1 – December 31, 2012). Grantees wrote about lessons learned during the 1st grant year and about the progress being made in each of the five RTT-ELC reform areas and on their corresponding performance measures.
Following is a summary of the 1st year of work that grantees completed in the RTT-ELC reform area of A Great Early Childhood Education Workforce. Some of this work cuts across various reform areas and is therefore categorized by content area. This summary is by no means an exhaustive collection of all the work being done in the workforce area in a particular State, but it is a compilation of the work highlighted and documented by the grantees as being supported by RTT-ELC funds and as meeting the stated RTT-ELC goals.
