Colorado faculties use COVID cash for math, studying curriculum

Dozens of Colorado faculty districts and constitution faculties are shopping for new math and studying curriculum with assist from $10 million in federal pandemic reduction. 

State officers introduced Wednesday that 42 districts and 28 constitution faculties will obtain grants to buy studying curriculum for early elementary grades and math curriculum for elementary and center faculty. 

The $10 million is a small chunk of the $180 million put aside for state-level efforts to assist faculties with COVID restoration. Greater than $1.5 billion in further federal reduction funding went immediately to highschool districts.

The curriculum grants come at a time when many Colorado districts are adopting new Okay-3 studying curriculum to adjust to a 2019 state regulation that requires them to make use of packages backed by analysis on how youngsters study to learn. Whereas there’s no related regulation masking math curriculum, schooling division guidelines say the grants can solely be used for sure math packages — particularly, people who earned high “inexperienced” scores from EdReports, a nationwide curriculum reviewer. 

Along with Colorado’s studying regulation, efforts to reverse pandemic studying loss have fed the push to interchange previous or ineffective curriculum. Such packages could be dear and districts usually can afford to interchange them solely each six or seven years. 

State curriculum grants went to quite a lot of giant and small districts that serve bigger numbers of scholars with excessive wants, for instance those that come from low-income households, are twin language learners, or spent a variety of time in distant studying throughout the pandemic. Among the many giant districts receiving the grants are Jeffco Public Colleges, Adams 12 5 Star Colleges, Colorado Springs District 11, and Greeley-Evans District 6.
