Mathematics & Science Partnership

WCAX video shows grade 5/6 students working in their Maker Space classroom at Monkton Central School; where they are learning about motion, forces, and making circuits.

The goal of the Mathematics & Science Partnership (MSP) is:

  1. To increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers;
  2. To build statewide capacity for professional development of K-12 staff by establishing networks of highly skilled teacher leaders in mathematics and science; and
  3. To develop partnerships among K-12 educators, STEM faculty, and higher education personnel.

Funds from the MSP are currently being used to support high quality professional development programs in Vermont.

MSP Program Grant

The focus of the 2016-2017 MSP grant competition is mathematics. The project that is awarded the K-12 Leadership in Mathematics grant will focus on the development of a cadre of highly competent math teacher leaders as well as the development of a course for teachers of special populations. One grant for up to $300,000 will be awarded to a partnership that includes educators from high-need schools and higher education STEM faculty.

Letters of Intent are due by October 30, 2015. The deadline for applications is December 15, 2015. For more information, contact Pat Fitzsimmons, MSP Coordinator, at (802) 479-1425 or
