Two schools have been selected to receive an additional year of support through the Middle School Matters Institute (MSMI), including on-site professional development and ongoing coaching from national education experts and the necessary resources to implement proven strategies in mathematics.
Advanced Studies Magnet–Haut Gap Middle School in Johns Island, South Carolina, and Uplift Mighty Preparatory in Fort Worth, Texas, were selected after submitting detailed proposals that outlined goals for the 2015–2016 school year and described the benefits of continued support. Haut Gap originally was selected to receive support through MSMI in the 2014–2015 school year; Uplift Mighty was selected in the 2013–2014 school year.
MSMI is an initiative of the George W. Bush Institute in partnership with The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk. MSMI develops and disseminates resources that increase access to research on and proven practical strategies for middle school improvement. The goal of MSMI is to increase the number of students well prepared for high school and postsecondary success. MSMI is part of the Bush Institute's Middle School Matters program.
