The Mathematics and Science Partnership Program discretionary grant is intended to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers. Partnerships between high-need school districts and the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty in institutions of higher education are at the core of these improvement efforts. Other partners may include state education agencies, public charter schools or other public schools, businesses, and nonprofit or for-profit organizations concerned with mathematics and science education.
DPI will award subgrants, on a competitive basis, to eligible partnerships that must include at least one high-need LEA and an Institution of Higher Education.
A high-need LEA is any district where mathematics or science student proficiency scores do not exceed 65%, based on disaggregated 2012/13 WKCE scores, and where there is no currently active Title II, Part B grant, in the same content area, and one of the following:
