Working With 111 Schools Empowering 60K Students to be Drivers of their own Learning

kid∙FRIENDLy is the largest Race to the Top-District project funded to date by the US Department of Education.  We are on a journey with many partners to make our schools places where all students articulate dreams and aspirations, believe in their ability to achieve, and become drivers of their own learning.  Connect through our website, blog, and social media to learn along with us.  The possibilities are endless!



Our Website is a hub for communication. Visit us often to see what we are learning in our Race to the Top.
