Adds reference to:
105 ILCS 5/2-3.156 new

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Requires the State Board of Education to coordinate the acquisition, adaptation, and development of middle and high school mathematics curriculum models to aid school districts and teachers in implementing standards for all students. Provides that the acquisition, adaptation, and development process shall include the input of representatives of statewide educational organizations and stakeholders. Sets forth what the curriculum models must include, and provides that the curriculum models must be completed no later than March 1, 2013. Provides that the curriculum models and training programs must be made available to all school districts, which may choose to adopt or adapt the models in lieu of developing their own mathematics curricula. Requires the Illinois P-20 Council to submit a report to the Governor and the General Assembly on the extent and effect of utilization of the curriculum models by school districts. Provides that within 4 years after the effective date of the amendatory Act, State mathematics test results and higher education mathematics remediation data must be used to gauge the effectiveness of high school mathematics instruction and the extent of standards attainment and be used to guide the continuous improvement of the mathematics curriculum and instruction.

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 SB 3244 does not have a fiscal impact on the State Board of Education. The fiscal impact for school districts cannot be determined because it is unknown how many additional personnel or courses individual districts may need to add in order to meet the requirements of this legislation. The need for individual districts will differ greatly depending on procedures and processes that are currently in place.

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 While the requirements of SB 3244 will create some additional duties for agency personnel, the impact is expected to be minimal. No additional fiscal cost is expected for school districts.
