Section 152 of the 2021-22 Education Omnibus Budget Trailer Bill (Assembly Bill 130) directs CCEE, in partnership with selected county office(s) of education, to administer evidence-based professional learning opportunities to address learning recovery and acceleration, with consideration of the needs of high-need pupils, including low-income pupils, English learners, and pupils with disabilities.
Funded through the 2021-2022 California Budget Act, the learning acceleration grants will help establish a statewide professional development infrastructure to expand the use of evidence-based accelerated learning strategies that can support learning acceleration for California’s diverse pupil population, particularly in mathematics, literacy, and language development.
For the purposes of Section 152, “accelerated learning strategies” are those designed to meet pupils where they are in their learning and use evidence-based approaches to enable pupils to make strong and rapid progress in their mastery of knowledge and skills. These strategies may include individual or small group tutoring or whole class instruction using well-grounded methods with scaffolding and differentiation that meet pupils’ specific needs.
CCEE, in collaboration with the State Board of Education and Marin County Office of Education, hosted a statewide webinar on Friday, September 10 to provide an overview on the learning acceleration grants, the application process, and the grant award specifications.
