AR Tier 1 Mathematics Curriculum Grant
The purpose of the grant is to award Local Education Agencies (LEAs) competitive subgrants to select and implement high-quality instructional materials (HQIM) that support the Arkansas Initiative for Instructional Materials (AIIM) and the AR Math QuEST goals. The DESE-approved HQIM list is linked on the Phase II AR T1MC Request for Applications.
DESE requests applications from LEAs for Phase II Tier 1 Mathematics Curriculum (T1MC) Grants for grades 6-8, Algebra I, and Geometry. Districts that received Phase I T1MC Grant funding are not eligible for additional funding for grades/courses supported by Phase I but may apply for Phase II funding for grades K-5 and/or grades 6-8, Algebra I, and Geometry not previously funded.
