Report to the Governor's Mathematics and Sciences Advisory Board Presented to Governor Carroll A. Campbell, Jr.
South Carolina Governor's Mathematics and Sciences Advisory Board, Columbia.; South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This report presents the State of South Carolina's vision and plan for coordinating special programs in mathematics and science education. The report is divided into two sections. The first section identifies four critical needs and lists systemic responses to those needs. The second section presents the criteria recommended for the State Plan for Mathematics and Science Education Improvement and all major proposals and activities that fall under this plan. The critical needs of the state and proposed responses are to establish: (1) Statewide agreement on what every student should know in mathematics and science and an assessment system that supports those standards; (2) A continuous improvement approach regarding South Carolina's ability to meet the learning needs under #1; (3) An infrastructure for the equitable delivery of resources and services to meet the state's learning needs; and (4) A structure and responsibility for pressing the plan forward. Criteria for evaluating and redesigning mathematics and science education relate to: (1) Student preparation, development, and support; (2) Curriculum content, instruction, and assessment; (3) Teaching preparation, development, support, restructuring, and policy development; (4) Administrative preparation, development, coordination, restructuring, and policy development; (5) Resource equipment, facilities, materials, community, and people; and (6) Communication with the public, between agencies, and in progress reports. Appendices contain a listing and map of the proposed Resource and Professional Development Regions. (MAZ)
