SSI Up-date

August 31 marks the first year anniversary of the State-wide Systemic Initiative in South Carolina. Through the National Science Foundation, the state of South Carolina received a $9.7 million grant to enhance science and mathematics education. With the money the state was to set up 13 regional science and mathematics centers, or HUBS.

As of August 31, all thirteen HUBS are up and running. With all thirteen HUBS functioning, there will be exciting opportunities for all teachers throughout the state to participate in Curriculum Leadership Institutes, Administrative Leadership Institutes and Math/Science technology institutes. In addition, the HUBS provide a focal point in each region for teachers to meet and share ideas and enhance their own abilities in teaching mathematics and science. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities available to you through your HUB. And keep your eyes open and look for the new SSI logo. When you see the symbol (printed on this page), you know the program is part of the State Systemic Initiatives.

Below is the list of the HUB sites and staff. Please feel free to call them for information of activities sponsored by that HUB.
