Project MACSA – Math And Computer Science Advancement Project
Project Objectives and Activities:
- Improve grades 6-12 student higher level math performance, through intensive teacher training and District capacity-building
- Implement a grades 6-12 Computer Science (CS) Program by engaging with CS education experts such as Code.org to design courses, obtain materials and equipment and train teachers in CS content. Additionally, support implementation through on-going professional development, refinement of courses, and rigorous quality control.
- Build cultural connections for student success in Math and Computer Science by the creation and use of place based, culturally relevant lesson plans in those areas of study.
