Ohio Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) Program

2015 Application Information

Funding for the grants comes through Title II, Part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

The Ohio Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) provides professional development opportunities for Ohio's mathematics and science educators.

2015 OMSP Competitive Grant Request for Applications Theory Testing Programs will open July 2014.

2015 OMSP Competitive Grant Request for Applications Theory Building Programs will open August 2014.

All programs must include a High Needs Local Education Agency (HNLEA) and Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics faculty from an Institution of Higher Education. The STEM faculty must work as IHEs Arts and Science faculty. All programs must have an external evaluator.

The purpose of the Ohio MSP (OMSP or MSP) is to fund research on ways to increase teachers' knowledge of the mathematics and science content contained in the Ohio New Learning Standards (ONLS). To accomplish this purpose programs will incorporate research testing ways to use scientific and/or mathematical practices (found in ONLS) to improve teachers' content knowledge.

OMSP will fund two types of programs, theory building or theory testing. Theory building programs are smaller programs. Generally these programs will include a partnership between 1 IHE's STEM Department and 1 to 5 HNLEA. THe amount of funds available depends on the number of schools/teachers, number and amount of STEM faculty, as well as the design of the program. The maximum annually funding for these programs is $250,000. OMSP plans to fund 15-20 programs under this model.

The second type of program test theories, State of Ohio developed curricular materials, and/or rampant up of a successful OMSP program. These programs will include a partnerhip between 1 IHE's STEM Department and 10 or more HNLEAs. The programs logic model and application must contain a detailed experimental design or quasi experimental design that will provide statistically significant answers to the research question posed by Ohio's Mathematics and Science Partnership Program's Request for Application. The maximum funding for these programs is $425,000 annually. OMSP plans to fund 1-4 programs under this model.

Ohio Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) Program

The Ohio Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) provides professional development opportunities for Ohio's mathematics and science educators.

The first purpose of Ohio MSP is to increase the subject matter knowledge of mathematics and science teachers and knowledge of how students learn mathematics and science content. Programs bring together mathematics and science teacheres with mathematicians, scientists and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) faculty to expand teachers' subject matter knowledge. This professional development includes activities that directly relate to the mathematics and science underlying the Ohio Academic Content Standards and enhance the ability of teachers to understand and effectively implement Ohio's standards in their classrooms.

The second purpose of Ohio MSP focuses on professional development of mathematics and science teachers as a career long process. Programs provide opportunities for advanced and ongoing professional development activities that improve teachers' subject matter knowledge and knowledge of how students learn mathematics and science content. Projects provide teachers an opportunity to work with more experienced teachers and university faculty and to build collaborative peer groups in an effort to facilitate job embedded and sustained professional development.
