Standards of Quality; changes in provisions.  Provides for (i) early reading intervention services for students in grades K-3 who demonstrate deficiencies; (ii) mathematics intervention services to students in grades 6, 7, 8, and 9 who are at risk of failing the Algebra I end-of-course test; and (iii) local school division flexibility in the use of state funding designated for Standards of Learning Algebra Readiness; Standards of Quality Prevention, Intervention, and Remediation; Early Reading Intervention; and instructional technology resource teachers.

The bill codifies staffing standards for special education, gifted education, and career and technical education. Finally, the bill amends the definition of "support services" and requires local school divisions to report annually the amount of state and local funds budgeted and expended for each category of support services and the amounts received for support services that were used by the local school division to provide additional instructional services.
