School funding for Programmes for Students (PfS): ALL and ALiM

Funding for Accelerating Learning in Literacy (ALL) and Accelerating Learning in Mathematics (ALiM)

Accelerating Learning in Literacy (ALL) and Accelerating Learning in Mathematics (ALiM)

Each year, the Ministry funds $4,000 (GST excl) per place through the school’s operations grant as a contribution towards teacher participation in the programme.

We expect that schools will also contribute to their teachers’ programme. Ministry funding supports:

  • teacher release to support teacher participation in programme
  • student monitoring meetings
  • preparation for intervention e.g. parent meetings
  • coaching
  • data collection/assessment/observation
  • reporting.

Funding for ALL and ALiM is paid through your operations grant in April or July.
