According to the MSDE, the program will invest in ways to address the learning loss for students who underperform and become at risk of being mistaken for having intellectual or emotional disabilities. State officials say their focusing on African American, male and English learner students. State Superintendent Mohammed Choudhury said the grant opportunity will allow local education agencies to conduct training, analyze data and implement new processes.
