2013 Mathematics and Science Partnerships Request for Application (RFA) and Call for Reviewers
Kentucky’s Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) program is designed to improve the performance of teachers, students and administrators in the areas of mathematics, science, technology and engineering. The MSP program is based on the premise that everyone benefits when K-12 education (teachers and administrators) and higher education institutions work closely together to improve mathematics and science learning. It emphasizes the need for stronger connections between content and pedagogical experts in mathematics, science, engineering and technology within higher education, and educators in elementary, middle and secondary education. It is anticipated that the Kentucky Department of Education will award approximately 5 grants at $140,000 for year 1 (January, 2013 to September 30, 2013) and at $195,000 for the second year (October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014), with a possible third year (at $97,500) contingent upon evaluation, project success, evidence of impact on pedagogical content knowledge growth and student achievement, and availability of funding.
Kentucky legislation provides funding to both the Council on Postsecondary Education and the Kentucky Department of Education to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education initiatives throughout the state. The high school PLTW Biomedical Sciences program has been identified as a STEM initiative for which funding is provided to establish and support this effort. This Request for Application (RFA) will allow local school districts to apply for a grant to establish and sustain existing PLTW/Biomedical Sciences Career Pathway initiatives for secondary students to enter postsecondary related programs and related careers.
