SSI: Statewide Systemic Initiatives in Science, Mathematics, & Engineering. 1994-1995. State Profiles.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Directorate for Education and Human Resources.
The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Statewide Systemic Initiatives (SSI) Program is a major effort by NSF to encourage improvements in science, mathematics, and engineering education through comprehensive systemic changes in the educational systems of the states. The SSI Program represents a strategy to strengthen the infrastructure for science and mathematics education through alignment of state policies and resources. This effort requires collaboration of educators at all levels, business and industry, parents, and the community at large. This publication describes the individual state initiatives funded through the SSI Program and focuses on state accomplishments and impact. Each state profile lists contact person information, state background, vision, strategy, accomplishments, and important partners and alliances. Presently, 24 states and Puerto Rico have five-year SSI awards: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. An appendix lists principal investigators with positions/affiliations in addition to SSI. (MKR)
