Mathematics and Science Partnership Program, Title II B

Title II, Part B of NCLB authorizes a Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) program. MSP 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. In Michigan, it is required that the partnership also include at least one of Michigan's Mathematics/Science Centers per Sec. 99 of the School Aid Act. Other partners may include public charter schools or other public schools, colleges of teacher education, community colleges, businesses, and nonprofit or for-profit organizations concerned with mathematics and science education.

Michigan expects approximately $3,000,000 for the MSP competitive grant program for 2013-14.  The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is responsible for the administration of this program.  For more information contact Ruth Anne Hodges in the Office of Education Improvement and Innovation, hodgesr3@michigan.gov.
