Project Description

The Millville and Woodbine school districts are partnering in the MATRIX project to address significant needs of our intermediate school students. Key to our plan will be a partnership with Rowan University and their Mathematics department to provide extensive, ongoing professional development. The main goal of this program is to increase individual student achievement in the area of mathematics. The third year of our program will include two more Millville sending district schools, Maurice River Township and Lawrence Township. Upon completion of this project, students entering ninth grade will share like math and technology skills. This focused staff training, combined with dedicated technology resources and our research-based initiatives, will lead to significantly improved results for our students.
