The Great Valley Math and Science Partnership
The Great Valley Math and Science Partnership is bringing together the largest 9-12 high school district in California with the local university to promote a common goal of improving math and science education and ultimately increasing the size of math and science-literate workforce in the region. To accomplish these goals, California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) and the Kern High School District (KHSD) are partnering in an effort to create an institute with a focus on structured and guided authentic research participation experiences for teachers to develop a group of master teachers in math and science content, pedagogy and leadership.
