House Bill 497

Required K-3 students who received a failing grade in a subject to receive tutoring during the first nine weeks of school. The bill also required additional accelerated instruction for students who continue to receive failing grades in any subject for subsequent grading periods. Schools would have been required to form a committee for each student requiring instruction. The committee would have been responsible for developing an educational plan for the student that would provide accelerated instruction over the course of the semester. Accelerated instruction, as outlined in the bill as a requirement for funding, included: dosage, intended outcomes, high quality instructional materials, learning integration, ratio, and tutor.
