The Ceres Unified School District has been awarded the California Mathematics & Science Partnership Grant for $3 million spread over three years.
Seventeen districts statewide were picked this round. The grant will fund training that focuses on math instruction in fifth and sixth grades. Ceres Unified is the lead in this project and is a partner with California State University, Stanislaus, and the Stanislaus County Office of Education to provide a comprehensive program to improve student achievement in math.
More than 100 teachers will be participating, 55 from Ceres Unified and 65 from other districts and schools throughout the county. For more information, visit www.cde.ca.gov/pd/ca/ma/camspintrod.asp.
