Rhode Island education officials have submitted their final report to the federal government, tracking the state's $75 million federal Race to the Top Grant.
According to the report, the grant paid for nearly half of Rhode Island educators to receive training in the Common Core standards. It also paid for a data system that is supposed to help teachers get feedback on how their students are doing.
State officials say approximately $4.8 million of the grant money remains to be spent. It has been committed to ongoing projects and is scheduled to be paid out by the end of June.
