National Math and Science Initiative Turning the Tide in U.S. Math and Science Education

Recent article about the success of the National Math and Science Intiative: CLICK HERE

National Math and Science Initiative and AP Strategies, Inc

The companies that comprise the LBJ Express Project understand that ensuring that a robust pipeline of highly skilled personnel with backgrounds in math and science is essential to the success of our project and our industry.

 

The LBJ Express project management team has identified science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education as a top priority for corporate social responsibility initiatives.  Specifically, we seek opportunities to enhance STEM education at the local level in Texas, directly impacting the lives of thousands of students in the communities in which we operate and serve.  In May, the project team are announcing a partnership with the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) and AP Strategies (APS) to expand Advanced Placement math and science programs in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District, which is located in the heart of the LBJ Express project.

 

Based in Dallas, NMSI and APS are nationally recognized for their work in expanding enrollment and student achievement in the critical fields of AP math and science through intensive teacher training, open enrollment and incentives for students and teachers.  (For more information, please visit www.NationalMathandScience.org).

 

LBJ Express Project Grant – Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District

 

LBJ Infrastructure Group (LBJIG), in collaboration with its project partners, is supporting the implementation of an AP Training and Incentive Program at R.L. Turner High School in Carrollton.  The program will launch in fall 2011 and will impact approximately 1,900 students. 

 

Specifically, the grant will support the following over the next five years:

  • Intensive teacher training sessions
  • Vertical alignment of teachers/”lead” teachers to coach less experienced AP and pre-AP teachers
  • More time on tasks for students; Saturday prep sessions
  • Financial incentives for teachers and students based on academic performance.
