Current Bill Summary

SB 668 - This act establishes a four year, competitive grant program to school districts for improving math curriculum and instruction up to grade 9.

Applications may be made for grant funding for individual schools, a combination of schools or an entire school district. The act specifies certain elements which must be included in any application, including a process of instructional improvement and stated goals for improving student performance. Funding beyond the second year shall be based upon improvement in student performance on the 8th grade mathematics assessment.

Upon conclusion of the grant, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education may reimburse the local match, based upon improvement in student performance. The Department shall establish standards for student performance improvement needed for continued grant funding and reimbursement of local match.

Funds shall be distributed in equal amounts within geographic areas based proportionately on student population, but may be reallocated from an area if there are not sufficient applications.

This act is the same as SB 97 (2001).
