On November 26, Governor Baker signed into law the Student Opportunity Act (Chapter 123 of the Acts of 2019). The bill implements the recommendations of the 2015 Foundation Budget Review Commission. The law also requires that districts develop Student Opportunity Plans indicating how the district will use the funds to close opportunity gaps for at risk student groups. These plans must:
Establish targets and outcome measures for addressing persistent disparities in achievement among student subgroups;
Identify specific evidence-based programs the district intends to implement to effectively reduce these disparities;
Outline how Chapter 70 funds, as well as other local, state, and federal funds, will be used to implement the plan, including information about school level spending and resources for selected student subgroups; and
Specify ongoing plans to effectively engage families and measure family engagement efforts, including targeted plans for families of low-income students, English learners and students with disabilities.
