The GSKyTeach program was established in 2009 through a Teacher Quality Partnership grant from the U.S. Department of Education in an effort to improve the quality of mathematics, physics and chemistry teachers in high-needs high schools in Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Ky.  To date, the GSKyTeach program has awarded master’s degrees to 29 individuals who are now serving as mathematics, physics and chemistry teachers in Louisville High Schools.  The GSKyTeach program is jointly operated through Ogden College of Science and Engineering and the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at WKU.
