    The intent of this program is to increase academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers. Core partners in these grants must include science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics departments/faculty from institutions of higher education (IHE), including community colleges. Priority will also be given to those grants including a strong partnership with regional PA STEM Initiative projects. Partnerships of higher education, high-need LEAs, and other stakeholders will draw upon the strong disciplinary expertise of the mathematicians, scientists, technology and engineering faculty from higher education institutions to develop professional development activities that will increase student achievement by providing teachers with strong mathematics and/or science content knowledge.


    Title III Supplemental Program

    Title III, Language Instruction for English Learners and Immigrant Students, Part A provides supplemental funds to LEAs to improve the education of EL and immigrant children and youth, by assisting the children to learn English and meet challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards. These funds may be used to supplement a wide array of educational services. The funds support activities that assist EL students in developing English language proficiency in comprehension, listening, speaking, reading and writing, and in meeting the same challenging state academic content and student academic achievement standards as all children are expected to meet.
