AIR and Turnaround for Children have authored two white papers to support districts who are applying for the Race to the Top – District (RTTD) competition. The two white papers provide guidelines for establishing foundational conditions as outlined by RTTD and for using a specific set of metrics to measure their effectiveness and impact.
In September of 2012, AIR completed a study, Study of a New Method of Funding for Public Schools in Nevada, for the Nevada State legislature to investigate how the state finance system could be improved by determining how it could best address the differential funding needs of students and smaller rural districts.
