AR Tier 1 Mathematics Curriculum Grant

The Arkansas Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has been awarded a $3 million grant from the Walton Family Foundation for Phase II funding of high-quality tier 1 mathematics curriculum (T1MC) in schools across the state. 

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. 
 

Phase I funding of $1.8 million, awarded on July 14, 2020, provided access to and implementation support for high-quality tier 1 mathematics curriculum that impacted 14,000 students and 180 teachers in 38 schools throughout 22 districts.
