Rep. Steve Thayn, R-Emmett, took a moment between floor sessions Monday to meet with IdahoReporter.com to discuss the final passage of the Mastery Advancement Pilot Project, or as it is more commonly known, MAPP.

Thayn teamed with Rep. Branden Durst, D-Boise, to craft the legislation prior to the legislative session.  MAPP is the first of its kind in Idaho and provides students of all grades the ability to test out of their classes and move ahead both in grade and course levels.  If students graduate early, they would receive a state-funded scholarship to be used at a public university or college in the state of Idaho.

The legislation is headed to the desk of Gov. Butch Otter.  If Otter signs it, Thayn said he will immediately go to work on writing the rules and outlines for the operations of the program.

Here is Rep. Thayn talking about the program:
