The funding will provide for small-group math instruction for 10,000 students in 25 city elementary schools for a 16-month period, according to district officials.
The district is currently in its second year of implementing Zearn Mathematics and will use the foundation funding to increase access to the individualized teaching model, boost professional development for teachers, and further develop parent outreach, communication and engagement.
