Project Description

Through this initiative, in partnership with the Lawnside and Haddon Heights Public Schools along with our non-public partners, Holy Rosary School, and St. Rose of Lima the Camden County Educational Technology Training Center (ETTC) has developed a continuing and comprehensive plan that will ensure success in mathematics for students in grades six through eight.

The program is designed to increase achievement in mathematics for students in grades six through eight by providing classroom teachers and administrators with ongoing professional development and yearlong in-class (mathematics) mentoring and modeling support. Professional development will focus on integrating technology into the curriculum and instruction, as well as focusing on improving the delivery of mathematics instruction. Through this initiative, all partners are striving for a three-year goal of improving mathematics scores on the New Jersey standardized test (GEPA) for all eighth grade students.
