Re-imagining futures in STEME

Improving Regional Low SES Students’ Learning and Wellbeing (LP150100558)

The intended impacts of this program include: (a) quantitative improvement in the academic performance of participant students in the subjects of English, mathematics and science, (b) gains in student wellbeing in participant schools, (c) reduction in student absentee rates in these schools, and (d) application of these successes to other like schools and school systems. These gains will promote broader positive social and economic outcomes for participants and the broader community.
