The Math Teacher Leader Collaboration is a state-level Math and Science Partnership grant (MSP) awarded by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The project serves Brunswick County 6-9th grade math teachers and aims to a) increase their math content knowledge and understanding of the Common Core State Standards b) improve classroom instruction of all participating teachers c) create a cohort of teacher leaders in order to expand the impact of Math TLC. Participants attend a math summer content course, receive coaching throughout the year, and participate in a lesson study cycle with other teachers. A smaller cohort of teachers are selected each summer to attend a 2 day leadership training. All participating teachers are encouraged to attend PLC meetings, workshops, and conferences during the year.
College and Career Ready: Opening Doors with Virtual Opportunities
The award is made to the Onslow County Schools by the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) through the Military-Connected Academic Support Programs (MCASP). The project is designed to improve college and career readiness outcomes for military dependent students. Program goals will be met by providing opportunities for enrollment in the newly developed district virtual high school which will allow military dependent students to initiate and/or complete courses regardless of relocation. The project will provide social/emotional supports for military dependent students by expanding the Student to Student peer mentoring program to the virtually-enrolled students. The project will provide virtual and face-to-face parent awareness programs focused on virtual learning and college/career readiness strategies.
