Two grants totaling more than $1 million will help provide training for Washington County Public Schools teachers in science and math, administrators on Tuesday told the Board of Education.

The school system will share the grants with co-applicant Howard County (Md.) Public Schools, said Patricia Abernethy, deputy superintendent for instruction.

According to Jana Palmer, supervisor of elementary mathematics and science, Howard County will control funds for staff development in math, while Washington County will control the money for staff development in science.

The systems will partner with several other institutions, including Frostburg State University, Hagerstown Community College and McDaniel College, to help teachers work more effectively with special-education students and students who are learning English as a second language.
