Summary

The bill creates the fifth-day academic enrichment and support
grant program (program) to award grants on a 3-year cycle to one or more
eligible community-based nonprofit organizations (organizations) to
provide supplemental educational programs to full-day kindergarten
through high school-aged children on the fifth day of the week for
children in schools that have a 4-day school week.

To be eligible for a grant, organizations must, in part, have
experience providing before- and after-school programs, serve a majority
of children from low-income families, and have a relationship or
partnership with a local school district that serves children in the program.
The state board of education (state board) awards program grants
in a 3-year grant cycle, with an initial grant and automatic renewal of the
grant for 2 years as set forth in the bill. The amount of the initial and
renewal grants is determined by the state board based on the number of
children served in the program and other criteria specified in the bill.
Grants must be used for one or more of the purposes specified in
the bill, including to provide supplemental educational programming to
support students' academic development on the fifth day of a 4-day school
week, to provide meals for students attending the program, and to acquire
educational materials and necessary technology to provide supplemental
educational programming.
The state board shall promulgate rules to establish the program,
including the application process and deadlines.
Grantees are required to report annually to the department of
education (department) on the use of the grant money, with the
department reporting to certain committees of the general assembly.
The bill creates a fund from which to pay program grants,
consisting of money appropriated or transferred to the fund by the general
assembly.
