MathAmigos (New CWG!)
Outcome Area: K-12 Success and Youth Resiliency
MathAmigos is a new Collaborative Working Group and will provide more information about they're doing in the Santa Fe community at a later date. Read about their purpose and future plans below.
The MathAmigos group mobilizes the expertise and resources of five committed community partners to develop strategies to raise mid-level math proficiency, especially for 8th graders, in Santa Fe Public Schools. These partners will form an active collaborative structure for examining data on current math challenges and best practices and for sponsoring SFPS and community activities to raise math awareness and proficiency, including teo workshops for math teachers and a special Southside “Math Power” family event.
The MathAmigos will look at best practices for math teachers in Santa Fe, create and host professional development workshops for math teachers and host a Family Event on the Southside entitled Math Power.
The MathAmigos CWG addresses the Mentorship, Leadership, and Education goal for improving proficiency in “3rd grade reading and 8th grade math”, which will contribute to higher high school graduation rates.
