State works to improve student math skills
Salt Lake City, UTAH — Through the 2013 session, the Utah State Legislature has provided $8.5 million for the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Action Center to purchase supplemental math soft-ware for Utah classrooms. All public schools, including charter schools, can apply for a two year grant to use one of seven math technologies for 6th through 8th grade and five math technologies for 9th through 12th grade.
These technologies are meant as intervention or remediation to supplement what teachers are currently teaching in their classroom. The grant is not cumbersome for schools to receive the software.
Whether you are a parent, teacher or administrator, the STEM Action Center encourages all interested parties to get more info about this grant, one of a series of grants that will be available over the coming years for different grade levels. The application can be found at STEM.utah.gov and is due April 18th.
If you have questions, please contact the STEM Action Center at STEM@utah.gov.
