Funding Purpose / Priorities

The Digital Math program is part of the Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP), which is a formula grant program that supports improved academic achievement of students in the areas of mathematics and science through enhanced training of teachers. The grant is awarded to partnerships consisting of high-need school districts and science, mathematics, and engineering departments within universities and colleges, giving districts and arts and science faculty joint responsibility for improving mathematics and science instruction.

Project Performance Accountability

 

The Florida Department of Education has developed a standardized format for applicants to use in preparing their proposals / applications for discretionary funds. The intent of this process is to assure proper accountability for the use of federal and state funds. The Department has implemented a web-based Grants Management System and the information provided about each funded project will be entered into this system. The Department’s program managers will track each project’s performance based on the information provided in this section of the approved project.

 

This information will:

 

ü     Provide a centralized capability for retrieving information about various discretionary projects awarded by the Department.

ü     Assist policy-makers and managers in monitoring discretionary funds and the impact they are having.

ü     Provide baseline information that can be used in assessing the alignment of funding to goals and strategic imperatives and in allocating available funding to priority needs.

ü     Facilitate effective project monitoring.

 

Types of project performance have been organized into four categories. These are:

 

ü     Deliverables: Category Includes: Documents such as manuals, reports, videos, CD ROMs, training materials, brochures, and any other tangible product to be developed by the project.

ü     Training, Technical Assistance, and Dissemination: Category Includes: All training and technical assistance (TA) activities whether provided onsite, through distance learning media, conferences, workshops, or other delivery strategies.

ü     Student Performance: Category Includes: Any measure that is specific to student performance (e.g., test scores, attendance, behavior, award of diplomas, certificates, etc. “Students” may include pre-k, K-12, and adult learners as well as parents.

ü     Service Delivery: Category Includes: Delivery of intended services to target population (e.g., adult literacy services, child find services, student evaluation services, etc.)

 

For each type of performance for which a project will be held accountable, the applicant must complete the information specified in the attached forms. Use only those forms and types of performance applicable to the project. Instructions are provided for the completion of each form.

 

Selected projects are required to obtain independent, formal, third-party evaluations. Other projects elect to obtain such evaluations. If the proposal or application includes a required or optional third-party evaluation, a form and instructions for describing the proposal evaluation are provided.
