Advancing College Readiness
After a careful vendor selection process, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has selected Mass Insight Education as the sole provider to deliver the College and Career Readiness Initiative: The Pre-AP Teacher Training for Middle and High School Teachers Program in the content areas of ELA, mathematics, and science. The work of Mass Insight Education will be to provide grades 6-12 middle and high school teacher teams training and technical assistance to promote equitable access to Advanced Placement (AP®) and other high level coursework for all students, and to increase the number of low income and minority high school graduates prepared to enroll and succeed in credit-bearing coursework in college.
Since 2007, Mass Insight Education has been deeply engaged in both AP® and Pre-AP training and support. Mass Insight’s Pre-AP and AP programs are demonstrably closing achievement gaps and their work in schools and districts through the Massachusetts Math and Science Initiative (MMSI) has affirmed what many educators believe—students will rise to the level of expectations that are set for them, if they are provided with the appropriate support. We believe that Massachusetts can be a national leader in closing achievement gaps through initiatives such as the pre-AP teacher training program. Mass Insight has partnered with Laying the Foundation® to create our Pre-AP program, the Mass Math and Science Initiative Advancing College Readiness Program (MMSI ARC).About Advancing College Readiness
