Partners include grant over five years from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

- 52 Rural School districts in KY, TN and VA
- 9 Higher education institutions in the region

AMSP seeks to reform and strengthen math and science instruction in pre K-12 classrooms in the Central Appalachian region.

- Performance will be improved through the collaboration of all partners.
- A more specific AMSP goal is to eliminate the math and science achievement gap in the Central Appalachian region.

Part of AMSP’s strategy is to establish an integrated elementary, secondary and higher education system.

The system will feature a continuum of learning as partners at all levels capitalize on opportunities to be both teachers and learners.

The four major related program initiatives are: at all levels capitalize on opportunities to be both teachers and learners.

- Pre-service and administrator education
- Professional development of pre K-12 personnel
- Student learning opportunities, including parent/community engagement
- Research to advance the understanding of rural education reform

- The summer institutes are examples of professional development activities.
- The summer institutes are strongly related to the other three initiatives.

SUMMER INSTITUTES development activities.

- They benefit from planning and development of pre-service coursework that has occurred.
- They will be followed by implementation in participants’ classrooms.

Evaluation of the institutes and follow-up implementation will help inform pre-service courses for teachers, in-service education and instruction in K-12 classrooms.
