MAF

The Math Achievement Fund is a grant from the Kentucky Department of Education to provide schools with funds for teacher training and implementation of intervention services to help primary students struggling with meeting grade level or benchmark expectations for mathematics.

The KCM assists the KDE with the adminstration of the MAF Program by providing professional learning opportunities for MAF math intervention and classroom teachers, visiting MAF schools, and helping MAF teachers fulfill grant requirements.
