Contract for Excellence
Information from the New York State Education Department
The Contracts for Excellence (C4E) Program was established in 2007 to provide additional accountability for increased State Aid for low performing school districts. C4E is a comprehensive approach to targeting fiscal resources to specific allowable programs proven to raise the achievement of the students with the greatest educational need. Districts required to enter a contract must document the schools, programs, and student subgroups to be targeted for funding, along with specific, achievable performance improvements that will result. This web site gives guidance to participating C4E districts and provides the public with information on school-level allocations of Foundation Aid subject to C4E restrictions.
