House Bill 351 was signed into law on May 9, 2019, amending section MCA 20-9-116 to revise education laws to support transformational learning.
Transformational Learning is defined as a flexible system of pupil-centered learning that is designed to meet the Montana Constitutional mandate of "fully develop[ing] the educational potential of each person."
The bill establishes a flexible system that includes:
- customized learning to address each pupil's strengths, needs and interests;
- continued focus on each pupil's proficiency over content; and
- actively engaging each pupil in determining what, how, when and where learning occurs.
