Oregon Mathematics and Science Partnership Grant Request for Proposals
The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has released the Request For Proposal (RFP) PDF for the Title IIB Mathematics and Science Partnerships (MSP) grant program for the 2012-14 funding cycle. Applicants may submit proposals for either of two options detailed in the RFP focusing on development and/or implementation of regional STEM education partnerships. Applications for both options must be received at ODE by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 4, 2012.

A technical assistance WebEx will be hosted by ODE on April 18, 2012 from 10:00-11:00 PDT. Details for the Technical Assistance WebEx will be available on the ODE Title IIB MSP webpage. A recording of the technical assistance WebEx will be made available on the ODE website for those unable to attend.

Title II, Part B of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) authorizes a Mathematics and Science Partnership competitive grant program within each state. The program is intended to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers.

ODE is responsible for the administration of this competitive grant program and will make awards to partnerships of high-need school districts and science, mathematics, and/or engineering departments within institutions of higher education. The overall goal is to give school districts, and higher education mathematics and science faculty, joint responsibility for improving mathematics and science instruction through the process of implementing partnerships that provide high-quality professional development for K-12 teachers. Please forward this notice to department heads, administrators, and any interested party you think would benefit from the information.
