The Technical Assistance Academy for Mathematics and Science Services (TAAMSS) designed
by The Eisenhower Consortium for Mathematics and Science Education at SERVE is
featured in this chapter. The Academy’s goals are to build capacity for systemic reform in
education and to scale-up the dissemination of exemplary science and mathematics materials.
By focusing on a develop-the-developer model, the Academy addresses the ongoing
professional development needs of staff developers in mathematics and science education.
