Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and other state officials signed an application in Long Beach Tuesday for the second round of a federal school funding competition known as "Race to the Top."States that have pledged to make reforms are eligible to compete for $4.3 billion in federal education funding.

California failed to win federal dollars in the first attempt.

Unlike the previous application, which was for the entire state, Tuesday's application will apply only to certain school districts representing about 27 percent of California's 6.3 million public school students.
