About this page

In November 2010, 21 area school districts pooled $3 million in federal Race To The Top grants to form the Capital Region Network Team, an unprecedented regional collaborative charged with raising student achievement. Members of the Network Team An Advisory Committee, comprised of representatives from each of the participating districts, run the Network, deciding what support it needs (in terms of training and staffing), what direction it will take and how to use the pooled funds.


Twenty-one school districts from Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga and Schoharie counties have pooled their funding from the Race to the Top federal monies - nearly $3 million - and expertise to create an unprecedented consortium aimed at raising student achievement.

The group, which will be run by the districts and supported by the Capital Region BOCES, is called the Capital Region Network Team. The districts participating range from large city districts to small rural districts. Learn more about the RTTT Network Team
