Fall regional meetings: What does it take to be a STE(A)M-designated school?


Have you wondered what it takes to be a STE(A)M-designated school? It’s more than just offering extra science and math courses. The Ohio STEM Learning Network and Ohio Department of Education will host four regional meetings for schools that are considering applying for STE(A)M designation. STEAM schools add instruction in the arts to their science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM) curricula.
Learn about the attributes of a STE(A)M-designated school — from creating a culture of innovation and building student career pathways to forging partnerships with local community and industry partners.
Each session will review the Quality Model for STEM and STEAM schools, the recently updated designation application and the new rubric. This free professional development opportunity is intended for principals, curriculum directors or any other staff leaders who will be responsible for creating and leading a school’s STE(A)M initiative.
All sessions run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and will offer the same agenda:

  • Oct. 10, Bigelow Hill Intermediate School in Findlay;
  • Oct. 16, Bio-Med Science Academy in Rootstown;
  • Oct. 24, Chillicothe Primary School in Chillicothe; and
  • Nov. 14, Dayton Regional STEM School in Kettering.
Registration for all the sessions above is available here. For answers to questions, please contact Kimberly Bell.
