Equity in Higher Level Math

Because research shows that students who enroll in higher-level math their senior year do much better in college than other students, schools that receive College Spark funding to implement SY-AYD or Intensified Algebra will be eligible to receive additional grants to increase equity in higher level math.

These additional grant funds may be used to support strategies that increase access to and success in rigorous math courses such as Advanced Placement. Schools will be encouraged to use grant funds to work with Equal Opportunity Schools to identify and close AP/IB participation and achievement gaps.
