The bill creates the math achievement accelerator grant program

district, board of cooperative services that operates a school that serves
kindergarten or any of grades one through 8, or a charter school that
serves kindergarten or any of grades one through 8 may apply to the
department to participate in the grant program. The department, with the
assistance of a grant review committee convened by the commissioner of
education, shall review the grant applications and recommend to the state
board of education (state board) grant recipients and the grant amounts.
The state board shall select the applicants that will receive 3-year grants
to implement research-based, school-based plans to improve student
achievement in mathematics in the elementary and middle school grades.
The bill specifies the required contents of the application and the criteria
the department and the state board shall apply in recommending and
selecting grant recipients. Distribution of grant money in the second and
third years of a grant is conditioned on the department finding that the
grant recipient is meeting specified requirements. The department shall
pay grants out of the math achievement accelerator grant fund created in
the bill.
The bill directs the department to contract with an independent
evaluator to annually evaluate the school-based plans implemented using
the grant money, their effectiveness in improving student achievement in
mathematics, and the overall implementation of the grant program. The
department shall submit the evaluation reports prepared by the
independent evaluator to the state board and the education committees of
the general assembly.
The bill makes an appropriation.
