STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 08632C2 This bill is the part of the Idaho Literacy Act: Every Child's Birthright which addresses the need for interventions for those students scoring below grade level in reading when assessed near the end of the academic year. It establishes an extended year ("summer school") program, with transportation provided, to help the student achieve grade level. The local districts will be reimbursed by the state based on attendance. The bill also requires an annual report on intervention efforts. FISCAL NOTE The Legislative Reading committee estimates costs to create the extended year intervention at $2,700,000 plus an additional $432,000 for transportation. This assumes a 1:10 teacher-pupil ratio for the equivalence of a class of four weeks, two hours per day, and transportation capped at $30.00 per child.
