National Math & Science Initiative (NMSI)

Welcome to the OGHS National Math & Science Initiative (NMSI)!
 
Updates on COVID-19: www.nms.org/covid-19
 
In the 2018-2019 school year, two EUHSD high schools received a three year grant from the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) College Readiness Program to dramatically increase student access to rigorous Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
 
This program will aim to expand college readiness by providing support to students, teachers, and schools as shown in the diagram to the right.

A Message From NMSI:

 

NMSI stands in partnership with you during this extraordinary time. We are here to support you in even more ways than we have in the past, acknowledging that the impact COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having on students, educators and communities is unlike anything we’ve encountered in our lifetime. 

 

NMSI is adjusting our delivery model to ensure student support that is aligned to the College Board’s 2020 AP Exam administration continues through the spring. As such, we are offering our NMSI Watch Parties - a second round of live and on-demand resources for teachers and students that begin Monday, April 20, and end Friday, May 1.  

 

During our NMSI Watch Parties, students will experience some of our most dynamic coaches presenting content that is critical to success on the adjusted AP exam. Expert AP teachers will field real-time questions and provide feedback on student work during each live session.   

 

Registration for the April 20 to May 1 NMSI Watch Parties is now open.  Students may select the sessions based on the topics for which they need support by referencing the NMSI Watch Parties schedule here.  When you have identified the Watch Parties you wish to attend, click on the topic to access the Eventbrite registration system.  Once you are registered, you will receive an email with further instructions.  Be sure to register for all the sessions you want to attend. Please contact customer service with any questions or for support.  

 

To ensure we reach as many teachers and students as possible, we’re asking that you do the following:   

1.Partner School Directors – please distribute registration information to AP teachers and students.  

2.Teachers – please distribute Watch Party details, including registration links, to your students via email or your online classrooms. Please note that we also ask teachers to participate in online sessions alongside their students.  

3. For all educators - please help NMSI keep our sessions as secure and protected as possible by not sharing links publicly on social media.  We don’t want to invite disruptions or mischief from individuals who are not part of NMSI’s programs.

 

We are here to support your navigation of the changes in our program delivery.  Bookmark this link to access future student session links and other future updates from NMSI. Please do not hesitate to direct any questions to customer service.  A member of your School Support Team, including your Program Manager or Operations Coordinator, will contact you directly.    

In Partnership,
   

Your NMSI School Support Team
