Tarleton State is one of seven universities selected to help Jacksonville State University Partners expand the Collaborative Regional Education, or CORE Initiative.
Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education in 2013, CORE is aimed at transforming K-12 and higher education through innovative technology and teaching methods. JSU Partners will conduct a research study of approximately 40 classrooms in eighth through 12th grades across the nation.
As a partner university, Tarleton will share CORE with 10 area teachers selected for the study. Teachers will receive $1,000 in classroom funds for instructional materials and a MacBook Air computer.
