Our District has partnered with Utah Valley University to develop a stronger knowledge of STEM subjects for our K-6 teachers.
The essential information for the program is as follows:
Classes are held on Thursday evenings from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM beginning on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Classes meet either at Provo High School (1125 North University Ave. Provo, UT 84604, Room D1-16) or at the Grandview CTE Classroom (1591 North Jordan Ave, Provo, UT 84604).
There will be at least one full Saturday field trip per semester.
This is a two year program which will have teachers committing to four semesters of classwork during two school years and to summer coursework in 2018 and 2019. Twelve of the eighteen credit hours earned can be applied towards the Masters in Elementary STEM Education Degree offered by Utah Valley University.
Summer coursework is kept to a maximum of 10 days. This summer coursework is field based and takes teachers away from their families for up to 5 days at a time.
STEM School Designation
Applications are available.
If you plan to pursue a STEM Designation for your school, please contact the Teaching and Learning Department for assist and support of your efforts.
