The Milwaukee Public Schools are taking a lead on a comprehensive approach to integrating the Mathematics Common Core State Standards with science standards. As a plan of action to improve PreK-12 student learning and achievement in Mathematics and Science, the MPS Comprehensive Mathematics and Science Plan (CMSP) is designed to equip every student with the levels of rigor and relevance needed for success in college and career readiness.

The CMSP will expand on the approached utilized in the 2010-2011 school year to develop and implement the Comprehensive Literacy Plan (CLP) to improve literacy performance. The CLP provides a single, district-wide vision for PreK-12 teaching and learning in literacy, and includes high-quality instructional materials aligned to curriculum, and on-going professional development for key district staff.

Foundational to the CMSP is a district-wide vision for mathematics and science. Its development is currently underway, and will be implemented during the 2011-2012 school year. The plan will include a guaranteed and viable curriculum for mathematics and science, research-based instructional design and strategies, assessments that inform teaching and learning, aligned resources including instructional technology, system-wide ongoing professional development, and broad community and constituency engagement. This work is supported in part by the GE Foundation Developing Futures in Education Grant. Regular updates will follow as MPS continues the work to develop and implement its Comprehensive Mathematics and Science Plan.
