The Georgia Department of Education is pleased to provide professional learning institutes to middle and high school mathematics educators. The Mathematics Summer Professional Learning Institute Program will be presented at five sites throughout the state. At each site, three institutes are planned: a three-day institute for high school mathematics teachers who plan to teach Foundations of Algebra and middle school mathematics teachers who support students with significant gaps in mathematics achievement, a one-day institute for high school algebra teachers, and a one-day institute for high school geometry teachers.
We are asking that Superintendents submit their district point of contact for the summer program by March 3, 2015 to Sandi Woodall at firstname.lastname@example.org. The GaDOE will work with that point of contact to identify three teacher participants from each high school and one teacher participant from each middle school by April 15, 2015. A second round of registration will begin on April 24, 2015, to fill any remaining seats.
Communication will be sent to districts' Title I and II directors encouraging them to use Title I and/or Title II funds to pay travel and stipends for participants in the summer program.
The GaDOE is looking forward to each district's participation in the Mathematics Summer Professional Learning Institute program.
