PIERRE | More than 100 teachers from across South Dakota will participate in a university and K-12 partnership program with the support of federal dollars.
University science, math and education faculty will work with teachers and administrators from high-need districts. Teachers will get help developing lesson plans in math and science at summer workshops.
Five projects will receive nearly $270,000 in grants from the federal Education Department. The funding is available from April 2014 through September 2015.
Black Hills State University and South Dakota State University are collaborating with teacher groups.
School districts in Todd, Summit and Bennett counties are among the ones that will participate in the program.
