Ohio education officials are receiving support from 40% of school districts for education reforms tied to their bid for Race to the Top funding. Of the state's 613 school districts, 250 -- including five of eight big-city districts -- signed memorandums of understanding accepting policy changes in exchange for a share of the $400 million Ohio is seeking, according to state education chief Deborah S. Delisle. The state will be awarded funding partly based on opt-ins from school districts. Two state teachers unions are supporting the bid.
