Untilthe legislative approval to lift the cap in 2019, there were 19 districts and charters,consisting of 32 schools participating in the network to chart the course for Idaho’sshift to student progression based on demonstrated mastery, not seat time.

Statewide, 25% of all school districts and 12% of all publiccharter schools participate in IMEN, representing more than 53 schools and nearly15,000 students.IMPACTSDETAB 2 Page 1

STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIONFEBRUARY 12, 2020The Department of Education’s budget currently contains an ongoing GeneralFund line item for mastery-based education of 1.4 million. Of that, 1.05 millionis distributed in grants to participating school districts and public schools. Thegrants range from 3,500- 59,000. Grant funding is used to support meeting costs,professional development, action research and travel. Schools may also use theirfunding for supplies, stipends, substitute teachers and learning managementsystems.For FY2021 the Department has requested an additional 500,000 of ongoingfunding to support the expanded participation in IMEN and meeting the legislativerequirement of developing a scalable/sustainable statewide implementation planfor Idaho Mastery Education. The balance of the appropriation covers Departmentcosts of 350,000 for contracts that support participants.ATTACHMENTSAttachment 1 – Mastery Education Summary InfographicAttachment 2 – Mastery Education PresentationSTAFF COMMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONSIn 2014, the Board facilitated the work of five (5) subcommittees working onrecommendations for implementing the 2013 Education Improvement Task ForceRecommendations.The Structure and Governance Subcommittee’sresponsibilities included implementation strategies for the shift to a mastery-basedsystem where students advanced based upon content mastery, rather than seattime requirements. The subcommittee found there were no prohibitions in state lawto moving to a mastery-based system, and that there is specific authorization inAdministrative Code that allows school districts and charter schools to developtheir own mechanisms for assessing student mastery of content and awardingcredits for the mastery at the secondary level. The subcommittee recognized thatthere were some barriers in how school districts reported students in specific gradelevels to the state for funding. However, most barriers were largely perceivedrather than actual obstructions. The full recommendations may be viewed on theBoard’s website.Section 33-1632, Idaho Code requires the Department to: (a) provide ongoingstatewide outreach and communication to increase awareness and understandingin mastery-based education; (b) facilitate and maintain the Idaho masteryeducation network; and (c) create a sustainability plan for statewide scaling ofmastery-based education.As identified in the original subcommittee of the Governor’s Task Force forImproving Education, state law and administrative code allow for school districtsand charter schools to implement a master-based education system. The purposeof the original incubators was intended to be used to identify barriers, real andperceived, that were keeping school districts from implementing master-basedsystems.
