"KK. Out of this appropriation, $250,000.00 the second year from the general fund shall be provided for grants to school divisions for encouraging active-in class, remote and hybrid learning for students in pre-kindergarten through the second grade. School divisions seeking to apply for this grant shall submit a proposal to the Department of Education outlining the intended use of funds and a projected number of students to be served. The Department shall establish criteria for awarding these funds. The funds may be used to purchase a platform featuring on-demand activities that integrate math and English standards of learning content into movement-rich activities that can be used at school, home and on all devices (i.e, computers, tablets and phones)."


(This amendment provides $250,000 the second year from the general fund to provide active learning grants. First year funding for this initiative was eliminated in Chapter 56, 2020 Special Session I.)
