Educator Survey Feedback:

Thank you so much for taking time to respond and return our educator survey. We have learned a lot from your suggestions and eagerly anticipate moving our program forward based on the recommendations received. If you have not already done so, please send in your survey. Thank you!  

 

2011-2012 Textbook Lists: 

In early June 2011, we will mail all mathematics and science department chairs a letter requesting a list of adopted textbooks for the 2011-2012 academic year. This will help us update our resource center and better help student callers by having their textbooks at hand. Thank you in advance.

 

We appreciate your continuous support. THANK YOU!
