The Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) program is intended to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of teachers of mathematics. Partnerships between Priority, Focus, and Title I schools and the mathematics faculty in institutions of higher education are at the core of these improvement efforts. Additional partners may include public charter schools, businesses, and nonprofit or for-profit organizations concerned with mathematics education. Private schools are encouraged to participate in the program. Private schools within the boundaries of any eligible Local Education Agency (LEA) may participate directly in the program through the local public school district.
The New Jersey Department of Education Mathematics and Science Partnership Program is a three-year grant program designed to support the development of partnerships between IHEs and LEAs. Based on the availability of federal resources, this three-year grant program will begin July 1, 2013 and end on June 30, 2016.
