News: Grant Supports Mathematics Education

Congratulations to Professor Jan Koop who was awarded a $200,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Education to provide professional development in mathematics to 41 educators during 2010-2011.

With this grant, Calvin will begin a new partnership with Godfrey-Lee Public Schools, whose administration and teachers are very eager to participate. Their entire 1st-5th grade teaching staff will be joined by teachers from Holy Name of Jesus and Westside Christian. Other Calvin partners include Jim Rooks and Debra Buursma (education) and Laura Kapitula (mathematics and statistics) who will serve as the internal evaluator.
