The Kentucky Center for Mathematics is partnering with other Kentucky organizations and universities to develop “The Road to Success in Algebra I,” a professional learning experience for teachers working with 8th- or 9th-grade students before or during Algebra I.

Teachers participating in the program should be better able to diagnose student need and use that evidence to design and deliver supplemental, targeted instruction to help their students become more successful in Algebra I.

Participating teachers will attend a one-hour online orientation meeting and eight days of in-person meetings between August and December or between January and June 2016, and their principals must agree to attend three days. There will be four cohorts, tentatively set to be located in Bowling Green, Lexington, London and Louisville.

Funding will cover the costs of training, materials, travel and a stipend or substitute pay of up to $125 per day.

The deadline to express interest in the program, which is non-binding, is May 14. Click here for more information.
