Principal Agreement


As part of the application process for MSI's science teacher education courses, we ask that principals submit an agreement form that indicates support and understanding of the course requirements.

MSI courses are designed to improve 4th- through 8th-grade teachers’ knowledge of science concepts and enhance classroom practice through expanded use of inquiry-based and hands-on/minds-on science. In addition, these courses will help teachers incorporate academic standards and curricular requirements into field trips and provide pre- and post-field trip classroom activities that support student learning. There is no cost to participate in this program.

If selected to participate, each teacher will receive:

  • Six workshops.
  • Classroom curriculum and kits of materials.
  • Continuing education credit.
  • Optional graduate credit from Illinois Institute of Technology or Valparaiso University.
  • Substitute teacher reimbursement.

Please fill out and submit the form below to complete your teachers' applications.
