Student Opportunity Act (SOA) - Notification

The SOA (Chapter 132 of the Acts of 2019), signed into law by Governor Baker, provides additional chapter 70 school funding to districts to reduce disparities among student groups such as English learners and low-income students, and effectively close the achievement gap. Although the amount of the increase has not yet been approved through the legislative process, we could receive approximately $1.6 million dollars of additional chapter 70 funds for FY21.
