Purpose of the Scope of Work
The finalized MPS scope of work is both a federally required document and an important tool in helping both districts and RIDE organize, manage, and monitor implementation of both RTTT initiatives and progress against the overarching student achievement goals of the state. The scope of work addresses the following requirements:
(1) All participating LEAs that signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) must create an implementation plan (Scope of Work) to be reviewed and approved by RIDE in order to access funds and work with the state on implementing the five major systems of support described in Rhode Island’s Race to the Top Application.
(2) Scope of Work translates the MOU and Preliminary Scope of Work into the specific LEA activities that support improvements in the following: (1) Standards and Curriculum; (2) Instructional Improvement; (3) Educator Effectiveness; (4) Human Capital Development; and (5) School Transformation & Innovation.
(3) The Scope of Work delineates the specific components that RIDE has committed to do and articulates what commitments the LEA agreed to do in supporting implementation.
(4) The Scope of Work delineates the specific actions that RIDE and the LEA will undertake in order to achieve our statewide goals of achieved student performance.
