The University Place School District is one of six education organizations in the state that will share an annual $1.7 million federal Mathematics and Science Partnership grant for three years. The grant aims to strengthen the collaboration between school districts and institutions of higher education for improving mathematics and science instruction and learning. Materials and curriculum supports developed through the grant will be available for use by districts and schools across the state.
University Place School District will partner with Fife School District and Seattle Pacific University. The project focuses on improving teacher content knowledge of central math concepts, and is designed to help a teacher’s ability to question and analyze student thinking.Compiled by Debbie Cafazzo and Mary Anderson, staff writers
