One-of-a-kind UMF Math Coaching Project receives $174K grant
The UMF Maine Mathematics Coaching Project, a unique offering that trains math coaches to help educators with new instructional strategies, has received a $174,848 grant from the Maine Department of Education’s Math and Science Partnership Project. The UMF MMCP is the only one in Maine and one of only a handful nationally that requires participation by both teachers and district administrators, according to the Morning Sentinel. The grant funds will help K-8 educators and their districts strengthen teaching and learning in mathematics with the goal of increasing the math proficiency of Maine students. Twenty-nine educators are currently participating in two, two-year cohorts with a third cohort starting this June.
