$4,000 – The purpose of this grant is to provide financial assistance to middle schools for in-service education in mathematics. For 2019-2020, grants of a maximum of $4,000 each will be awarded to middle schools. Costs may include honoraria and expenses for consultants, materials, substitute time, and conference or workshop registrations. No funds may be used for staff travel or equipment. While this grant does not fund the purchase of technology, proposals including professional development involving the use of technology to enhance student learning are encouraged. Proposals must address the following: need, mathematics content, scope of the plan, other contributing sources of funding, number of teachers and students affected, distribution of costs, urban-rural isolation, and multi-ethnic student body and its impact on performance.
Only schools with a current (on or before April 19, 2019) NCTM Pre-K-8 school membership are eligible to apply for this grant. No school may receive more than one award administered by the Mathematics Education Trust in the same academic year. Past recipients of this grant are not eligible to reapply. Activities are to be completed between September 1, 2019, and August 31, 2020.
