The U.S. Department of Education announced today that 16 applicants - representing 55 school districts across 11 states and D.C - have won the 2012 Race to the Top-District competition.

Schools in five of the seven area counties - Adair County School District, Campbellsville Independent Schools, Green County Schools, Metcalfe County Schools, Russell County Schools , and Taylor County Schools - will share in a United States Department of Education Race to the top award to a consortium led by the Green River Regional Education Cooperative. The consortium includes these schools:
Adair County Schools, Campbellsville Independent Schools, Carroll County Schools, Caverna Independent Schools, Cloverport Independent Schools, Daviess County Schools, Green County Schools, Hart County Schools, Henry County Schools, Logan County Schools, Metcalfe County Schools, Monroe County Schools, Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative, Owen County Schools, Owensboro Independent Schools, Russell County Schools, Shelby County Schools, Simpson County Schools, Spencer County Schools, Taylor County Schools, Trimble County Schools, Union County Schools, West Point Independent Schools)
"Districts have been hungry to drive reform at the local level, and now these winners can empower their school leaders to pursue innovative ideas where they have the greatest impact: in the classroom," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. "The Race to the Top-District grantees have shown tremendous leadership though developing plans that will transform the learning environment and enable students to receive a personalized, world-class education."

Love to all from Miss Donna Rieder

I'm amazed at the compassion and generosity of people around here - DONNA REIDER

Miss Donna writes:
I have to say I am amazed at the compassion and generosity of the people around here. I have spent the better half of this morning on the phone talking to complete strangers who want to help feed my animals. Liz Tyler brought out a bag of goat feed this morning, and a nice lady named Linda Byrd is bringing some more this afternoon. Betsy called from TSC and said someone had bought goat feed and left a giftcard for me. I had a nice talk with my dear friend Ben Briscoe, whom I hadn't talked to in ages, and he and Wendy are going to help organize this so that the feed can come as it's needed (I don't have a lot of storage space). I am near to tears with gratitude, and just wanted to say Thank You and God Bless to all of my wonderful new friends! Love to all, - Miss Donna
