1.6 Million Dollar Grant

Mount Airy City Schools (MACS) has received a 1.6 million dollar grant to support mathematics and leadership development for teachers.  The project is funded through a Mathematics and Science Partnership grant and will create a Mathematics and Leadership Institute by collaborating with The Piedmont Triad Educational Consortium (PTEC), Wake Forest University (WFU), The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas), and four other school districts.

The grant will provide needed training for 240 teachers over the course of three years in mathematics content, problem-based learning, project-based learning, and leadership development. One of the grant highlights will be Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) camps for students during the three-year implementation as well as coaching for teachers.

The district is excited about the incredible opportunities that the grant will provide to our teachers. Teachers will receive support from STEM faculty at world-class Institutes of Higher Education and experience nationally recognized leadership development from Dr. Larry Coble, Executive Director for PTEC.  Teachers from Mount Airy City Schools, Lexington City Schools, Alamance-Burlington Schools, Randolph County Schools and Davidson County Schools will be impacted by this amazing opportunity.  The teachers in MACS will become STEAM leaders and be able to provide sustainable trainings to other teachers throughout the region over the next several years.
