Mathematics and Science Partnership Program

 

The Mathematics and Science Partnership Program supports improved academic achievement of students in the areas of mathematics and science by encouraging state educational agencies, institutions of higher education, local educational agencies, elementary schools, and secondary schools to partner in high-quality professional development programs. The intent of this program is to increase academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers. Title II, Part B of NCLB authorizes a Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) competitive grant program.

The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) is responsible for the administration of the MSP Program. Available funds will be awarded by the ADE to support successful proposals submitted by eligible partnerships comprised of departments of mathematics, science, or engineering at Arizona institutions of higher education and high-need LEAs.
