4 Race to The Top I3 Grants Basic Requirements of the Grants: Innovative Solutions (utilizing technology) Scalable (can be used elsewhere) Sustainable (Can be funded over time) Focused on “At Risk” Children (low performing and low income) How Qwk2Lrn is Compliant: Utilizes the Michigan’s Freedom to Learn Research concepts validating 1:1 Results Uses Fractional Super Computers to Implement in a scalable way proven 1:1 using existing networks Up to 90% fundable by E-Rate funds readily available to all low income Districts Designed to engage ALL students with 100% differentiated instruction for all achievement levels (including learning disabled)

The Qwk2Lrn I3 Quick Start Consortium : 

9 The Qwk2Lrn I3 Quick Start Consortium Up to 8 School Districts who meet the Criteria Work together as a Team to submit Coordinated Applications by April 1, 2010 Common Research Objectives Common Research Methodologies Prove out a National Model Targeted Districts In the Consortium so far: Pontiac, Michigan Highland Park Michigan Detroit, Michigan Gaston County, Florida Jackson, Mississippi Hawaii (state wide district)

Does Your District Qualify forThe Qwk2Lrn I3 Quick Start Consortium :
