Statistics in Schools Contributors


Statistics in Schools (SIS) activities were created and reviewed by teachers, subject matter experts, and standards experts in K-12 education and curriculum design from across the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Island Areas. These educators work at various grade levels in public and private schools in rural, urban, and suburban communities. They are diverse in their backgrounds and in the student populations they serve.

All the educators who helped develop activities are listed below. The SIS program would not be possible without them.
