Last year, the MIND Research Institute, a non-profit organization based in Orange County developed visual approaches to illustrating math concepts and building problem-solving skills as the basis for spatial-temporal approach to math education for elementary and secondary schools.
Here at ECCLA, we wanted to find a way where we could honor schools which were performing well in order to really push students to succeed and help bridge the gap in math achievement in central Los Angeles. Our hope was to be able to not only recognize these schools for their exceptional work, but also for their collaborative efforts with MIND and ECCLA and root for future success. The solution? A monthly recognition award for the schools that out perform the more than 40 ECCLA schools currently implementing the ST Math computer programs!
Stay tuned for the announcement of the first MIND/ECCLA Recognition Award Winners!
