California Mathematics and Science Partnership Evaluation

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.

Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), the California Department of Education (CDE) is seeking proposals from eligible bidders for a statewide evaluator to analyze the implementation, effectiveness, progress, and impact of the California Mathematics and Science Partnership (CaMSP) Program. The purpose of this program is to enhance the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers through professional learning activities and thereby increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science. Local partnership grants focus on mathematics in grades three through Algebra I and science in grades three through eight. Core to the improvement efforts sought by CaMSP are the partnerships developed between high-need local educational agencies (LEAs) and the mathematics, science, and/or engineering faculties of institutions of higher education (IHEs).
