The Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) program strives to improve teacher quality through partnerships between state education agencies, institutions of higher education, high-need local education agencies, and schools to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science. The MSP program is a formula grant program to the states, with the size of individual state awards based on student population and poverty rates. With these funds, Georgia is responsible for administering a competition in which grants are made to partnerships to improve the content knowledge and teaching skills of K-12th grade mathematics and science teachers. The funding is used to provide professional learning for mathematics and science teachers.
