At least one Project Director from each Science and Mathematics Collaborative for the Texas Regional Collaboratives is required to attend this meeting. As stated in each project’s Statement of Work, at least one person must attend each of the Project Directors Meetings held during the grant year. If the Project Director or Co-Project Director is unable to attend, a qualified ITM familiar with all aspects of the grant can be selected as a substitute.



As stated above, all Regional Collaboratives are contractually obligated to send a representative to the Project Directors Meeting on September 22-23, 2016.

Project Directors Meetings familiarize Directors with the expectations and requirements of their grant. Topics such as data collection, reporting, invoicing, and professional development academies will be discussed. State and federal updates, grant progress, data analyses and latest research on teaching and learning of math and science will be shared and discussed. TRC staff and program leaders will be on hand to answer questions and provide support during the meeting days.

On Thursday, September 22nd, the meeting will begin at 10 a.m. with a 2-hour special meeting for all new Project Directors. This will be followed with lunch beginning at 12 p.m., and the business meeting for all science and math projects for the rest of the afternoon, ending approximately at 5 p.m. On Friday, September 23rd, we have a special program with speaker Jenn Nichols from the Frameworks Institute who will work with all projects on the topic of framing STEM education.  The Friday meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at approximately 2:00 p.m. Lunch and breakfast will be provided. Project Directors must attend both days.
