Replication Toolkit

With support from the NSF, the Mississippi Department of Education, the United States Department of Education and other funders, MSP plans to share its most successful programs and promising practices through a Replication Toolkit projected for publication in the academic year 2011-2012. The Replication Toolkit will have two levels of participation. First for individuals and institutions who want to inspire ownership of mathematics and sciences, the Replication Toolkit will cover action steps and lessons learned in coalition building, initial planning, needs assessment, introduction to web based resources and mapping community assets. For those institutions with sufficient infrastructure and resident expertise, the Replication Toolkit will define steps for program design and evaluation, budgeting and other operational aspects of key programs. Both levels will be assisted by MSP certified trainers and consultants. In addition, MSP is collaborating with its resource partners and other departments in CSET to create a virtual learning and living community in which the SMART Center, Project ILTE and Project MAST have major electronic features and virtual support for teachers and students from across the world.
