The bill directs the department of education (department) to identify educational products, strategies, and services that have demonstrated effectiveness in identifying and reversing student learning loss that has been caused by the suspension of in-person learning. The department must create and maintain a resource bank of examples of educational products, explanations of and instructions for implementing strategies and educational services, and models of professional development programs related to using the products and implementing the strategies and services. School districts, boards of cooperative services, and charter schools may submit information to the department concerning products, strategies, and services that they have used with success, and the department must include them in the resource bank. The department must also provide information concerning public or private nonprofit entities that school districts, boards of cooperative services, and charter schools may work with in providing student support. The bill also directs the department, to the extent possible within existing resources, to provide technical assistance to school districts and charter schools upon request.
