Thank you to all parents, students, school employees and community members who participated in the 2009-10 Contracts for Excellence public engagement process.
The deadline for public comment on the Department's proposed 2009-10 plan was October 8, 2009 (30 days from September 8, 2009, the date that the comprehensive plan was posted to the Department's website). The public was invited to comment on any aspect of the plan, including:
- How schools are planning to spend their discretionary funds within the six allowable program areas
- How the DOE is allocating targeted Contracts funds to schools
- How the DOE is allocating funds for district-wide Initiatives
- The Class Size Reduction plan
- The public comment process itself
