Career & College: Ready, Set, Go!
NC’s Race to the Top (RttT) Initiative
State Board of Education
April 7, 2011
Webinar Overview
1. Reiterate General RttT Requirements &
Process for LEAs/Charters (“Local”)
2. Clarify State Plan & Implications for Local
Plans
• Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM)
• NC Education Cloud
3. Address Questions
Key Take Away = Know how to move forward with your local RttT plan!

General RttT Requirements
1. For 2011-12 submission to DPI…Local DSWs must
include plans (i.e., a completed row on the spreadsheet)
for implementing all RttT Required Activities
2. Local RttT detailed budgets (in BUD) must match Local
DSWs (talk to your Finance Officer!)
3. Complete local DSWs must be submitted to DPI by
August 3, 2011 (same process as last fall…but much
more time to develop plans)

RttT STEM Goals
• Offer rigorous course of study in STEM to face
“Grand Challenges for Engineering”
• Cooperate with community partners to:

– Promote effective & relevant instruction for students
– Offer applied learning opportunities and careers in STEM
• Prepare more students for advanced study and
careers in STEM
– Include underrepresented groups of women and girls
– Include more students from “turnaround schools”
10

NC Education Cloud Update
Monday, April 11, 2011
17
NC Education Cloud end game…
• LEAs pay substantially less as part of a buyers’
consortium
• A shift in emphasis from technology support to
instructional support
• Increased IT efficiency – fewer more highly
utilized servers and other resources
• Increased service reliability – servers hosted in
professional data centers with backup, disaster
recovery, and service level guarantees
18
SHARED SERVICES
Attributes:
•Aggregate demand and procure/statewide license
•Buy services versus build infrastructure
•Pay for use infrastructure model(s); sustainable/shared
Results in:
•Equity of access to resources
•Scale based on aggregate demand
•Consistent high performance, reliability
•Infrastructure & platforms to support 21st century
education
•Reduced, sustainable operating costs
19
Some Really Important Things
• NC Ed Cloud is all about migrating to services
• Migrating to services:
•
•
•
•
•
Is not free
Is not always easy
Is not always hard
Requires a well-thought-out contract
Must include a service level agreement with teeth
• LEAs are not all the same so the benefits of cloud
accrue differently
• Business intelligence and analytics tools will be
important to the sustainability of broad cloud
deployments

NC Education Cloud Proposed Plan
25
How Are LEAs Involved in the Process?
• Round 1 of LEA Site Interviews; 54 completed
May 13.
• Advisory and Working Groups
• 52 community participants in our Cloud Advisory
process
• Shared Services Advisory Group, 16 members
• Identity and Access Management, Data Collection &
TCO Analysis, and Consortium Buying Working
Groups: each with about 12 members
• When all projects are underway, nearly 100 LEA
participants will be engaged in the process.
• In all groups, each region is represented, and assigned
based on interest and subject matter expertise.

• iSeries RFP
27
Site Interviews
• Objectives
• Communications/community education
• Data collection to support NC Education Cloud
plan development
• Community buy-in
28
Site Interviews
• DPI Regional Instructional Consultants
schedule site interviews
• Distribute link to survey to LEAs
• LEAs review the survey prior to the site
interview
• Conduct site interviews – complete data
collection
• Interview team typically - Dave Furiness, DPI
Instructional Consultant, Contractor - Systems
Consultant, NC Ed Cloud Leadership Team
• LEA participants – CTO/Technology Director,
designated staff, Instructional leadership
29
Site Interview Status
• 36 of 48 Phase 1 site interviews completed –
remaining 12 (Regions 7 & 8) to be competed by
April 21st
• Phase 2 site interviews (six largest LEAs)
scheduled to be completed May 13th
• Phase 3 site interviews (remaining LEAs and 1015 charter schools) will begin May 16th
• Although phase 3 site interviews will collect
identical information to phase 1 and 2, on-site
discussions will focus on service and process
validation
30
Site Interview Insights – Service
Considerations
• LEA and charter school challenges and
initiatives
• Understanding the LEA and charter school IT
and instructional technology environment
• “Full plate syndrome”
• Managing hidden costs (e.g. service migration
costs)
• Economic/financial data and considerations
• Where and how is money spent
• Service requirements
• Functional
• Service management
31
A Few Early Examples
• iSeries RFP and Plan
• Changes in State E-Rate filing process
• Firewall
• Content Filtering
32
What’s next?
• Updates and conversation at Regional
Technology Directors’ Meetings in late April and
May
• Complete Phase 1 site interviews and assemble
feedback and findings to “inform” the projects
and the Implementation Plan
• Assemble community needs into Cloud Project
recommendations and vet with Advisory Process
and industry leaders
• Align all levels of planning with other pillars,
especially IIS and NCVPS
33
Some conversation…
• We want to hear from you:
• What are we not doing?
• What are your concerns?
• What are your pain points?

RttT & E-Rate
1. Previous Funding Request
Must have used an appropriate competitive process and simply
need to keep that documentation on file to present if audited by
USED regarding use of RttT dollars. In other words, all E-rate and
state and local procurement rules apply. While supplanting with
RttT funds is not specifically prohibited, to be justified, the
expenditures must enable new or expanded capacity that the LEA
otherwise would not have had in the absence of the RttT dollars.
2. Future Funding Request
In addition to the “non-supplant” requirement, don’t forget the
Interactive Purchasing System (IPS) state requirement for goods
or services over $5,000.
35
Sole Sourcing
• Can a local education agency (LEA) or charter
school sole-source for a technology product or
with a technology vendor?
• LEAs should strive to use competitive bidding
procedures, but certain technology purchases can be
sole sourced
• LEAs/charters MUST follow the guidelines posted at

Questions?
Do you understand what you need to do to submit a complete local
DSW by August 2011 that DPI can approve?
Do you know what other RttT-related support DPI will offer between
now and August?
Are you clear what the State will be doing in 2011-12 related to:
•
STEM
•
NC Education Cloud
Do you know what you need to in order to move forward with your plan?
