MATH/SCIENCE PARTNERSHIP BASICS.
The MSP supports partnerships between the mathematics, science, and/or engineering faculty of institutions of higher education and high-need school districts. Other partners may include schools of education, business, and nonprofit organizations. The program´s goal is to increase student achievement through increasing teachers´ content knowledge and pedagogical skills.
The MSP is a formula grant program to the states; each state administers a competitive grants program, monitors their grantees´ progress, and documents their effectiveness, working with the U.S. Department of Education.
MSP projects may begin on different dates, so the yearly report may be due on different dates.
Reports are due each year, according to the following schedule:
Start date + 12 Months + 2 Months
= Submit APR to USDE
DUE DATES ARE SHOWN ON THE APR PROJECT LIST
“basic” = met standard; “proficient” = commended.
The data requested is for student performance on a State assessment. If a project does not have access to student data, enter “N/A” or “0”.
