EAST Model Expanding to Five Arkansas High School Math and Science Classrooms

The EAST Initiative is excited to announce the debut of EAST Core.

EAST Core is a pilot program funded by the Arkansas Department of Education and expands upon the traditional EAST model by moving nationally recognized EAST methods into math and science classrooms.

“EAST’s approach to innovation in education is unique and holds significant promise for moving our schools forward in STEM priorities, community engagement, project-based learning and communications; all with a customized approach.” said EAST President/CEO Matt Dozier.

Jim Boardman of the Arkansas Department of Education said “This pilot program that EAST is developing is something we’re very excited to be a part of and continues our long relationship in providing innovative education for the students of Arkansas. ”

Dondi Jackson, EAST’s Senior Director of Curricular Integration added “When the announcement of pilot grant availability was made this past summer, response to EAST’s program was significant and enthusiastic. Our team traveled across the state to meet with administrators, faculty and staff from both small and large school districts. We were blown away by how receptive they were.”

EAST Core grants are awarded to the following Arkansas schools:

  • Harrisburg High School
  • Hot Springs High School
  • Morrilton High School
  • Prairie Grove High School
  • Star City High School

The EAST Initiative is proud to be a part of this important step in delivering better services and resources to public education.
