The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) is offering an opportunity for Kentucky public school districts to apply for grants that will fund mathematics intervention services for primary students who are struggling to meet grade level or benchmark expectations for mathematics.

KDE expects to fund about 90 schools at an estimated $50,000 per year to support the hiring of one full-time mathematics intervention teacher and training for an intervention team consisting of the intervention teacher and two classroom teachers per school. Districts may apply on behalf of individual schools for the grants, which are renewable for up to four years.

To assist districts in preparing an application, KDE will offer four free regional technical assistance sessions that will provide applicants the only opportunity for in-person questions. The schedule of sessions:

  • Aug. 15 – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Frankfort, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. ET
  • Aug. 16 – Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative, Hazard, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. ET
  • Aug. 17 – Green River Regional Educational Cooperative, Bowling Green, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. CT
  • Aug. 18 – Western Kentucky Educational Cooperative Conference Center, Eddyville, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. CT

The deadline for submitting questions to KDE is Aug. 31; the application deadline is Oct. 1. Click here for more information. RSVP Pamela Pickens by Aug. 11 to attend a technical assistance session.
