Funding Description

The California Mathematics and Science Partnership (CaMSP) program seeks to establish partnerships to improve the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science. The focus is to create opportunities for enhanced and ongoing professional development for mathematics teachers (grade three through Algebra 1) and science teachers (grades three through eight).


Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria The essential partnership is between an eligible local educational agency (LEA) and eligible departments of institutions of higher education (IHE). County offices of education, individual schools, additional LEAs, IHEs, or other organizations concerned about mathematics and science education may also participate in the partnership. Only local educational agencies (LEAs) who meet the 40 percent free and reduced lunch criteria may apply as a lead partner for Cohort 8.
Other Eligibility Considerations The lead partner must be a "high-need LEA." The lead partner submits the application and accepts management and fiduciary responsibility for the partnership. The term "high-need LEA" refers to one that serves a student population where at least 40 percent of the students qualify for the National School Lunch Program. Eligible departments of IHEs are mathematics, science, engineering or any combination.
