K-12 Teacher Programs

The Center for Mathematics and Science Education (CMSE) is dedicated to the improvement of mathematics and science teaching at all levels. Recognizing that the K-12 community and the University can enhance each other’s knowledge in this domain, CMSE provides numerous opportunities for this collaboration to occur.

At the heart of programs for all teachers interested in science teaching is the California Science Project of Inland Northern California (CSP-INC). Similarly, the Chico Mathematics Project (CMP) serves in that capacity for mathematics teachers. Both offer extensive opportunities for teachers during the academic year as well as a variety of summer programs.

MSTI Teacher Support: Get added Math or Science credentials or authorizations at NO COST to you

We currently have funds to support current teachers to add these, and to add a Computer Science Authorization. We can reimburse for necessary professional development, courses, CSET tests, and the CTC application fee.

Prior to applying for this MSTI support, please ensure that you meet the following minimum requirements:
