The Fresno Unified School District was not selected as a finalist for the "Race to the Top" grant. The grant contains federal funding that could have been worth millions of dollars to the district.

You may remember the dispute earlier this month between the school district and the Fresno Teacher's Association over whether to apply for the nearly $40 million grant.

Both sides eventually agreed, after working out measures that would be used to determine student growth, and teacher assessment.

In a statement, Superintendent Michael Hansen said that through the tuition application process, a stronger partnership was built with the Fresno Teachers Association.
