INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Department of Education has awarded nearly $2.5 million in grants as part of the 2017-2018 Math and Science Partnership Program. The grants were awarded to recipients who have displayed a focus on classroom integration of math and science instruction.

The IDOE says the recipients have also shown an additional focus on STEM within grades K-12. The program encourages higher education institutions, local school corporations, elementary schools and secondary schools to take part in professional development activities aimed at increasing subject matter knowledge and teaching skills among math and science teachers.

"Placing a priority on math and science in the classroom is key to ensuring our students graduate prepared for the 21st century workforce," said Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick. "Focusing on STEM is vital to the future success of not only our students, but also our state. I applaud the efforts these schools have shown in this area and congratulate them on receiving this grant."
