Posted: Thu, 09/22/2011 - 11:55am Updated: Thu, 10/08/2015 - 10:56am

In January 2002, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) became law. Title II, Part B of this legislation authorizes a Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) competitive grant program. The intent of this program is to encourage institutes of higher education, local school corporations, elementary schools and secondary schools to participate in professional development activities that increase the subject matter knowledge and teaching skills of mathematics and science teachers. Professional development activities must be sustained, intensive, classroom focused and aligned with state and local standards and mathematics and science curricula. These activities must result in a measurable improvement in student academic achievement in mathematics and science. In Indiana, these funds are used to improve and upgrade the status and stature of mathematics and science teaching and learning in grades K-12. To learn more about MSP, please click HERE.
