RME Awarded TEA Grant for the 4th Year in a Row

Dr. Ketterlin Geller and RME have been awarded a grant from the Texas Education Agency. This funding is instrumental in RME's work to develop algebra-readiness assessments for students and professional development for educators that are designed to identify students struggling in mathematics, and provide the data for teachers to adjust the level of instructional support necessary for at-risk students to become proficient in algebra. 

This grant will also continue RME's work in developing and disseminating the updated Response to Intervention (RtI) guidance documentation for the state. When finalized, this content will be delivered via mobile application (app) and complementary website.
