Commitment to Model
Selected schools agree to follow the Access to Algebra Math Elements of Success model and enter into a partnership with AdvanceKentucky.
Submission of Application
Interested schools may apply to the program at any time of the year by completing an online application. The application may be accessed here. Site visits to schools are conducted each fall, with new cohorts chosen yearly in December.
The school selection process includes site visits with schools, a formal invitation to participate, and a Letter of Agreement negotiation meeting. Preference will be given to schools that are in a position to initiate or dramatically increase access to advanced middle school math programs, particularly for underrepresented student populations.
Availability of Funding
Overall funding is limited each year in total amount and by donor guidelines that may restrict the use of funds. We offer this early alert to applicants that while we work year-round on fundraising, we may not be certain of the total amount available to support new schools until the spring.
