September marks the beginning of the fourth year of the South
Carolina Statewide Systemic Initiative funded through the South Carolina
Legislature, South Carolina Department of Education and the National Science
Foundation. Because of the way the grant was structured, the first four hubs
(the first of which was the CSRA Hub) will
be losing funding for their science and mathematics specialists at the end of
the school year. Although we will be searching for funding to continue these
positions, there is no guarantee that funding will be found.
What will help in the search for funds is the support of schools and teachers. A letter of support from you stating how the science specialist, mathematics specialist and/or the Hub has helped you or your school would help us tremendously. The letter can be addressed to Jeff Priest and can be brought by the Center, mailed to the Center, or e-mailed to Jeff at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your support.
