Common Core Support



 

Great Opportunity for K-12 Public School

Math and Science Teachers!

 Apply now for Quality Science and Math Grants

Deadline September 12, 2014

Looking for a way to purchase math and science classroom materials? Are you in need of funding to support equipment for your great ideas? Wish you could implement some ideas seen during last year’s conferences or professional development training? The answer might be waiting for you through the Quality Math and Science Grant Program.

 The Quality Science & Mathematics Grant Program (QSM) was established by R.S. 17:371-1 of the Louisiana Legislature in the summer of 1992 for the purpose of providing grants to mathematics and science public school teachers for the purchase of materials and equipment. The QSM program administered by the Gordon Cain STEM Center at LSU (http://www.cain.lsu.edu/) has approximately $162,000 in funds to award grants to eligible classroom teachers for the 2014-15 school year. Grants of up to $750 each for approved materials and equipment are awarded on a competitive basis to individual classroom teachers to use in providing standards-based instruction to help meet state accountability goals. Applicants must show that their proposals will enhance the quality of instruction for regular education students who are enrolled in mathematics or science classes. Proposal must be submitted no later than Friday, September 12, 2014.

**NOTE: Only full-time classroom teachers assigned to teach mathematics or science in the K-12 regular education program in public schools are eligible to submit proposals. Go to http://www.seasystem.net/cgi-bin/qsm/ for the full guidelines and regulations.
