We are excited to announce Carroll Junior Senior High School has been selected as one of the new Lead Schools for a $250,000 Federal STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Integration Grant and Partnership with Purdue University. CJSHS Principal Angela Moreman has been working with officials from DOE and Purdue on this grant for about six months.
The grant will provide training for teachers over a three year period. Teachers will receive summer training and follow up throughout the year. Purdue has added staff to their Curriculum and Instruction Department over the past two years to support the growth of STEM in Indiana Schools.
Teachers participating in the program will be given training, develop new units, provided with funds to purchase some new supplies, and paid a stipend for their attendance at the training sessions. Carroll Junior Senior High School has also submitted its application to be identified as a STEM school by the Indiana DOE. Carroll's strong math department and successful engineering and PLTW programs make STEM a natural fit for us.
