(1) The general assembly hereby finds and declares that:
(a) Establishing a summer school grant program to provide funding to school districts
and institute charter schools to provide intensive reading, writing, or mathematics
education services to students entering the fifth through eighth grades who received
an unsatisfactory proficiency level score on the reading, writing, or mathematics
component of the Colorado student assessment program for the previous academic year
is an important element of an accountable education program to meet state academic
(b) Research shows that implementing research-based practices, as defined by the federal
“No Child Left Behind Act of 2001”, 20 U.S.C. sec. 6301 et seq., as amended, can cause significant improvement in a student's performance in reading,
writing, or mathematics in a short period.
(2) The general assembly therefore finds that a program to provide grants to school
districts and institute charter schools to assist them in providing summer school
programs for students who are entering the fifth through eighth grades and are performing
unsatisfactorily in reading, writing, or mathematics may receive funding from the
state education fund created in section 17(4) of article IX of the state constitution.
