AMSP's Partnership Enhancement Program for Local Empowerment between IHEs and School Districts


The Appalachian Mathematics and Science partnership (AMSP) has developed and implemented over the past two years a grant-supported, peer reviewed program of partnerships between district school teachers and administrators and higher education faculty called Partnership Enhancement Projects (PEPs). Key success factors in this model program of local empowerment are the use of dedicated math and science outreach tenured full professors and on site, regional program coordinators. The nature of this partnership model was discussed by AMSP's two outreach professors and its project director.
