Teachers across North Dakota are taking extra steps to make sure their students get the best math and science education possible.

North Dakota Superintendent Kirsten Baesler announced a new partnership with NMSI,, a national math and science initiative.

Teachers have the option to take part in an annual four day professional development summer class to learn how to better teach math and science.

The goal is to make sure students are college and career ready.

“This will give them a significant advantage when they eventually go on to college, helping them to graduate more quickly and saving our students and their parents money and avoiding that high student debt,” says Baesler.

Baesler says she hope this program lays the foundation for more AP classes in the state.
