Partnerships

Lemon Grove

The goal of this partnership is to increase student achievement and understanding in mathematics.  In order to accomplish this goal, a five-year plan detailing specific plans and strategies will be developed.  This partnership will work together to design and implement mathematics professional development including activities such as delivery, teacher mentoring, research, evaluation and assessment and program management. 

The initial effort of this partnership will be to offer the Mathematics Specialist Certificate Program (MSCP) for all teachers in kindergarten through grade 5 in the Lemon Grove School District (LGSD). This program will result in all of the mathematics instruction in grades K – 5 in LGSD being conducted by teachers with a Mathematics Specialist Certificate, resulting in increased student mathematics achievement and understanding. 

There is also a long-term component to this partnership to improve student mathematics achievement.  This will involve a Design Team with appropriate representatives from both partners to ensure sufficient input into the program design and delivery so that it meets the needs and expectations of the partners.

 

Ramona

The goal of this partnership is to increase student achievement and understanding in mathematics.  In order to accomplish this goal, a five-year plan detailing specific plans and strategies will be developed.  This partnership will work together to design and implement mathematics professional development including activities such as delivery, teacher mentoring, research, evaluation and assessment and program management. 

The initial effort of this partnership will be to offer the Mathematics Specialist Certificate Program (MSCP) for teachers in grades 4 through 6 in the Ramona Unified School District (RUSD).  In addition to enrolling in the MSCP, participating teachers will be encouraged to team-teach mathematics with a partner teacher at their school. This program will result in the majority of mathematics instruction on grades 4 – 6 in RUSD being conducted by teachers with a Mathematics Specialist Certificate, resulting in increased student mathematics achievement and understanding.

Sweetwater

The goal of this partnership is to insure that every student succeeds in Algebra I.  It is a type of intervention for all math teachers in this district (approx. 250 teachers). The teachers will participate in 4 days of professional development each year for a period of 3 - 5 years.

The plan is that all teachers in the Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD), teaching math 7, Math 8 and Algebra I would be required to participate.  We would work in 12 groups of teachers and each group would include all math teachers at one high school as well as its feeder middle schools.   The sessions would include math content and pedagogy and would address the needs of all students, including English Language Learners and Special Ed students. This partnership would involve district teachers in the planning and perhaps in the delivery of the sessions; and would be offered at the National City Professional Development Center, which would be central location for all teachers.

Long-term plans include expanding to other math courses, such as Finite Math and/or Geometry, and to incorporate distance learning in this work. We anticipate developing a 5-year plan for this partnership.

 

 

Collaborations

City Heights

This collaboration is comprised of professional development including activities such as course delivery, on- and off-site teacher mentoring, research, evaluation and assessment and program management.  This professional development is specifically geared for practicing teachers at Rosa Parks Elementary School and Monroe Clark Middle School, which is located in the community of City Heights.
