21st CCLC Request for Proposal

Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, added an unexpected provision to her sweeping education accountability bill Thursday: a pitch to free Florida school districts from having to provide private tutoring services at low-income schools.

Under current law, Florida school districts must spend 15 percent of their federal dollars for low-income students on private tutoring services. Passidomo’s pitch: Give school systems the option to spend that money on tutoring, or on other programs for low-income children instead.

“We feel that each school district is in the best position to determine and understand the needs of their students, and the best use of their Title I funding,” Passidomo said Thursday.
