Federal funding[edit]

On December 12, 2012, the New Haven School District won a $29 million grant among three in California and 16 nationwide to win "Race to the Top" funding from the federal government. The fund will be used help restore library and computer services throughout the district and the money will go toward a number of programs designed to increase student learning, improve achievement, and prepare students for success in college and beyond. Every student in grades 6 through 12 will get a mini-tablet. Teachers will get tablets and laptops. Classrooms will get document cameras and grades K through 5 will get one mini-tablet for every two students. As a condition to win the grant, the New Haven Teachers Association agreed to federal requirements that linked test scores to teacher improvement.[citation needed]
