SDCSC is a leader in STEM education! This week, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) announced 24 additional Indiana schools now certified in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Both Manchester Elementary School and Dillsboro Elementary School received their STEM certification! Manchester Elementary School and Dillsboro Elementary School began their STEM journey in the spring of 2021 as the world was still navigating the Covid-19 pandemic. The admi...nistrators and staff made a commitment to continue to provide students with the opportunity to engage in activities that would allow for collaboration and the development of critical thinking skills. Both MES Principal Mary Bailey and DES Principal Kyle Miller commend staff members for their commitment to this process. “When we were preparing for the IDOE’s site visit, it was exciting to reflect on the many media articles, social media posts, and pictures chronicling our STEM journey. Through the diverse STEM experiences students are receiving, they are enhancing both their education and employability with the new perspectives and skills they are developing. The staff has come together to create lessons that meet and exceed state standards and greatly encourage critical thinking, collaboration, and career exploration.” Congratulations to MES and DES for receiving STEM certification!
