The Indiana Department of Education is awarding more than $122 million in state grant funds to 110 community partners and schools across the state to help accelerate student learning. The department says awardees of the new Student Learning Recovery Grant Program will serve students in 83 of the state’s 92 counties.
“Community partners and educators are teaming up like never before to accelerate student learning this summer and in the years ahead,” Governor Eric Holcomb said. “We know that igniting student learning demands unprecedented collaboration from us all — educators, local leaders, community groups, parents and beyond. As these programs launch now and over the coming weeks, it’s an exciting time to be in an Indiana classroom.”
According to the department, recipients will provide support to students in literacy, math and college and career readiness this summer and throughout the coming school years through tutoring and afterschool programming.
“The opportunity to fund these partnerships through the Student Learning Recovery Grant Program is perfectly timed as Indiana’s schools are beginning to receive preliminary student-level state assessment data,” said Dr. Katie Jenner, Indiana Secretary of Education. “Indiana’s educators are working hard to analyze this data and prepare plans to strategically accelerate learning this summer and in the years to come, but they cannot do it alone. Innovative community and school partnerships throughout Indiana, like those receiving awards through this program, will contribute to maximizing the impact for Hoosier students.”
As part of the awards, the IDOE says schools will work to track student outcomes and monitor the return on investment.
