Audience: Directors of Schools and Education Stakeholders
The department is requesting a Tydings waiver from the U.S. Department of Education to extend the period of availability for the Math and Science Partnerships Program (Title II, Part B) FY14 funds. If approved, the Tydings waiver will increase the capacity of successful and high-performing MSP programs to reach more students in high-need LEAs. As a result, more teachers and ultimately, more students will benefit from this extension. The waiver request can be accessed here.
The public comment period will end Sept. 2. Please submit comments to Alyson.Lerma@tn.gov or via mail: Dr. Alyson Lerma, Tennessee Department of Education, CPM Division, 710 James Robertson Parkway, 9th Floor, Nashville, TN 37243.
