Abstract: The Mathematics and Science Partnerships program is a formula grant program to the States in which states make competitive awards to projects. The authorizing legislation, Title II, Part B, Section 2202(f) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, requires all locally funded projects to report annually to the Secretary documenting progress towards goals and objectives. The Annual Performance Report (APR), an online reporting tool, will provide projects an opportunity to describe partnerships, report on the impact of the projects, share effective professional development strategies, and help ED program officials to examine outcomes across multiple projects. The APR is a revision of a currently OMB-approved annual performance report and reflects program expansion and the consolidation of several monitoring tools.
