Michigan Department of Education Names Carnegie Learning External Service Provider for School ImprovementThe Michigan Department of Education announced that Carnegie Learning has been granted approval status to be an external service provider under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act School Improvement Grants (SIG).
All eligible Michigan school districts or public school academies applying for SIG funding may contract with Carnegie Learning as an approved external service provider to assist in meeting the goals and objectives of their selected intervention model. Six Michigan school districts have already committed to supporting their School Improvement programs with Carnegie Learning® Math Curricula and Professional Development.
Carnegie Learning® Math Curricula align to the High School Content Expectations, and the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations, as well as to the newly adopted Common Core State Standards.
Michigan received $119 million in SIG funds for local schools to improve teaching and learning for all students. Each eligible school can apply for up to $2 million each year, over a three-year period.
Carnegie Learning is also an approved SIG partner in the states of West Virginia and Hawaii, and the company’s curricula and professional development programs are implemented in school improvement models in districts in Indiana, North Carolina, and Washington State.
The Carnegie Learning® School Improvement Plan creates a partnership with districts that places evidence-based math instruction and job-embedded professional development at the center of transformational efforts.
