Result of Funding: This grant award will fund four partnerships that include five High-Need school districts (and additional ones that may participate), four mathematics and science departments at institutions of higher education, and other partners. This year, these partnerships will involve 53 teachers who are currently teaching mathematics, science, and technology/engineering, as well as teachers of English Language Learners and students with disabilities. These teachers are reported to have key responsibility for the education of approximately 3,088 students. Substantial courses of study will be offered that balance conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application in Math, and in Science, disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and application of the revised Science and Technology/Engineering (STE) standards.
