Expectations of Project Colleges
Re-Thinking Pre-College Math Expectations (excerpted from RPM
Participating colleges will be expected to demonstrate clear and visible department-wide and institutional commitment to the project and engage math faculty around key issues of mathematics instruction (including an explicit emphasis on involving adjunct/part-time faculty in the work).
Colleges will also support cross-campus connections and sharing of practice within the project and across the system. Specifically, p
articipating local projects will be expected to:
Use principles and standards for high quality mathematics education to guide departmental-based implementation plans focused on core areas of educational practice (curricular restructuring, instructional practices, and assessment (diagnostic formative and summative);
Ensure a consistent focus on the TMP College Readiness Standards, TMP resources and products, and the RPM project’s core elements and suggested
developmental course restructuring strategies;
Participate in activities and resource-sharing across local projects and with other mathematics initiatives to extend the reach and scope of RPM;
Utilize technical support and assistance provided by the Washington Center and by other program-supported state and national resource providers and experts;
Contribute to and promote an electronic clearinghouse of resource materials and lessons learned that support quality mathematics education;
Develop a sustainability plan that addresses how the work begun in the project will continue after the grant expires;
Participate in project-wide data collection and analysis for the purposes of formative and summative
evaluation, with particular attention to evidence available through the system Student Achievement Initiative database.
Specific Responsibilities of Grantees:
Provide regular fiscal and programmatic documentation:
Submit monthly invoices using OBIS. Each invoice must include a summary of activities/actions undertaken for the month;
Submit quarterly online activity and budget progress reports noting workplan changes, emerging needs, and progress made;
Complete an annual Online Grant Management System (OGMS) report on progress and anticipated project changes.
Accommodate and host up to three (3) site visits per year by representatives of the SBCTC Pre-College Advisory Team;
Offer input on and participate in project-wide targeted professional development events;
Send a team of key faculty and administrative leaders to the summer RPM Institutes in 2010, 2011, and 2012;
Present formally on your local Pre-College Math project at one or more local and state education conferences, workshops, webinars, and other professional development events (inform the SBCTC in advance of all such presentations);
Plan and host a 60-90 minute dissemination session (format to be determined), one in 2011 and one in 2012, on your project’s lessons learned, progress made, data collected, and opportunities for sustaining and deepening your project’s work;
Participate in the regular collection and dissemination of project feedback to influence program improvements.
Specific Responsibilities of the Re-Thinking Pre-College Math Project Leadership Team
Arrange for key state and national resource experts and partners to attend and to make presentations at RPM-sponsored training events and conferences conducted at the local or state level;
Encourage and assist grantees in the development of linkages across projects and to other math state and regional math initiatives;
Maintain an up-to-date project website and will include project grantee links, upcoming event information, and detailed quarterly progress reporting steps and procedures;
Be available to meet with project grantees to share new information, address emerging needs, and help ensure critical partners are working together;
Work with SBCTC staff to provide to grantees reports, studies and data to assist local project sites in meeting goals and objectives;
Orchestrate and oversee evaluation studies and data collection activities.
