Applications are now being accepted for the K-6 Mathematics Bursary Program. Through the Education Action Plan, bursaries are offered to K-6 teachers to build capacity and to enhance math education in primary and elementary schools.
The department welcomes applications from administrators and classroom teachers who work with K-6 students, including substitute teachers. For more information on the bursary program, including the application form, can be found here. The deadline for winter applications is January 31, 2020.
Since 2018, more than $250,000 has been invested in mathematics professional learning opportunities for educators, including $80,000 in bursaries for K-6 teachers.
Budget 2019 allocates $13 million, an increase of $6 million from Budget 2018, to continue implementation of the Education Action Plan. Supporting education delivers on commitments in The Way Forward to strengthen the province’s economic foundation and deliver better services and better outcomes for residents. The Way Forward can be viewed online at thewayforward.gov.nl.ca.
“I am pleased to report that there has been a great interest from primary and elementary teachers and administrators throughout the province looking to enhance their knowledge and skills in mathematics. Investing in professional learning opportunities will result in a stronger education system that is more responsive to the needs of students and which will improve student outcomes.”
