Project Description

White Township Consolidated School will partner with Lopatcong Township School District to implement the MATRIX grant. Math teachers from both rural Warren County school districts will receive professional development through Warren County ETTC and Rutgers University's Center for Math, Science and Computer Education as they work to use new handheld computers, SMARTboards, and methodologies aimed at improving student achievement in mathematics. Teachers and students will also benefit from a network of support provided through Warrennet, a consortium of twenty Warren County school districts spearheaded by Warren County Technical School. In addition, Warrennet will assist each district in creating and maintaining a project website of grant related information that will be available to students, parents, teachers and the community.
