The bill creates the Colorado high-impact tutoring program
(program) to provide grant funding to local education providers, as
defined in the bill, to create high-impact tutoring programs (tutoring
programs) to address student learning loss and unfinished learning due to
the presence of the COVID-19 pandemic in Colorado. A local education
provider or group of providers may apply to the department of education

(department) for a grant.
To receive a grant, a local education provider shall apply to the
department and shall demonstrate need, as determined by the department,
which may include serving low-income or underserved students.
The application must also include the local education provider's
plan for its tutoring program (program plan), which must include the
elements of a tutoring program and must detail how the local education
provider will implement the program plan.
The department shall review grant applications, and the
commissioner of education (commissioner) shall award grants. In
awarding grants, the commissioner shall consider the alignment of the
local education provider's program plan with the requirements of the
tutoring program, the number of students projected to be served, the
needs of a rural local education provider for financial or technical support
to implement a tutoring program, the cost of implementing the local
education provider's tutoring program, the amount of available money for
program grants, and any other criteria determined by the commissioner.
The state board of education may promulgate rules necessary to
implement the program.
In each year in which a grant is awarded, the bill requires a local
education provider receiving a grant to report to the department
information concerning the implementation of the tutoring program,
including student outcomes. The department shall also report annually to
the education committees of the general assembly, summarizing local
education providers' tutoring programs and student outcomes.
The department is not required to implement the program if there
is insufficient money to award program grants.
The bill repeals the program after 5 years.
