SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and California school leaders are applying for the second round of a federal school-funding competition.
The governor signed the application Tuesday during an event in Long Beach. California lost out in the first round of the federal Race to the Top program earlier this year.
States that have pledged to make reforms are eligible to compete for $4.3 billion.
Under California's reforms, teachers and principals would be evaluated in part based on student performance. The state also will try to place effective teachers in low-performing schools.
California's initial application was for the entire state. This one will apply only to certain school districts representing about 27 percent of California's 6.3 million public school students.
