School In-Service Training Grants for grades preschool through 5 provide funding support to elementary schools for in-service education in mathematics. Proposals must address the following: need, mathematics content, scope of the plan, other contributing sources of funding, number of teachers and students impacted, distribution of costs, and factors such as urban-rural isolation and multiethnic student body, as applicable. Funds may be used for honoraria and expenses for consultants, materials, substitute time, and conference or workshop registration.
Eligible schools must have a current prekindergarten through grade 8 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM) membership. Interested schools are invited to submit a proposal. Complete applications should include a three-page proposal describing the in-service need; impact on teaching and learning performance; itemized budget, including funding requests from all sources; and an assessment plan for evaluating the in-service impact.
A one-page signed letter of support from the school principal for the in-service plan, as well as confirmation of any local funding support, must be provided on school stationary. Three-fourths of the approved budget is paid at the beginning of the project, with the remainder paid upon receipt of a final project report and receipts for all expenses.
