The Texas Regional Collaboratives for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching were formed to improve the academic achievement of students in mathematics through teaching professional development. The ESC Region 15 is proud to be selected as one of the twenty-four regional mathematics collaboratives across the state receiving funding for the 2015-2016 school year.

We are currently serving 38 elementary and middle school teachers for the 2015-2016 school year.  
We will begin the application and recruiting process for the 2016-2017 school year in December of 2015.  If you or a math teacher you know is interested in participating as a Math Teacher Mentor, please contact the Region 15 Math department for additional information.
