SELBYVILLE, Del.- The Indian River School District is offering the public two opportunities to comment on a federal Race to the Top District Competition grant proposal that district officials said could provide millions of dollars in new technology to local schools. The district is partnering with the Brandywine, Colonial and New Castle County Vo-Tech school districts in submitting the application, which is due on Oct. 30.

The public is invited to attend a special town meeting on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 7 p.m. at Millsboro Middle School. District officials will give a brief overview of the grant proposal, and community members will have the opportunity to provide input on the technology plan.    

The public will also have the opportunity to comment on the proposal at the regular monthly Indian River Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. at Sussex Central High School. 

Applicants for the Race to the Top District Competition grant must design a personalized learning environment that will use collaborative, data-based strategies and 21st century tools such as online learning platforms, computers, mobile devices and learning algorithms to deliver instruction and supports tailored to the needs and goals of individual students. The goal is to enable all students to be college and career ready.

The Indian River School District and its partners will be notified about the status of their application in December, officials said.
