U.S. Department of Education Awards Grant to HPU and Thomasville Schools

Posted on June 23, 2014.

HIGH POINT, N.C., June 23, 2014 – High Point University’s School of Education and Thomasville City Schools were recently awarded a $150,000 Math Science Partnership (MSP) Grant by the U.S. Department of Education.

The grant will allow professors from HPU, under the direction of the School of Education, to provide in-depth content training in science and math for 40 K-8 teachers in Thomasville City Schools. The teachers will take two graduate level courses; complete professional development; and bring HPU faculty and graduate students into their classrooms to assist with implementing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) focused lessons.

“This will provide our graduate students with another opportunity to have real world experience both in STEM and in teacher leadership,” says Dr. Jane Bowser, assistant professor of education and grant co-author. “Most importantly, we will be working with one of our partner school districts and positively impacting the teachers and students in grades K-8.”

Bowser will also research the impact of the activities in the grant on teacher content knowledge, translation of that knowledge to classroom lessons and student success. The training begins in mid-July.
