Section 23h Improving Mathematics Teaching and Learning

Section 23h of the 2023-2024 School Aid Bill provides $25,000,000 to support mathematics teaching and learning in 4 areas:

  • Continued system development, capacity building, and networking spaces for early math specialists in districts and intermediate districts.
  • Incentives and supports for K-5 schools in the purchasing and implementation of high-quality mathematics instructional materials programs to engage students in equitable high-quality mathematics learning experiences through a guided adoption process through intermediate districts.
  • Supports for the expansion of math recovery specialists statewide through intermediate school districts.
  • Supports for secondary schools in offering supplemental just-in-time, personalized support programs in mathematics.

The Michigan Department of Education is distributing these funds through a competitive grant process and is soliciting proposals for each of these areas. Each area has its own set of application criteria, described below. Districts and/or ISDs are eligible applicants for funding under this legislation and may apply for any of the applications for which they are eligible and believe are important to improving mathematics teaching and learning in their district(s) or region(s).
