Time is running out to apply to be a North Carolina STEM School of Distinction. What is this recognition about? Learn more here.
The Department of Public Instruction and State Board of Education each year recognize schools around North Carolina who incorporate STEM instruction into the standards and daily lives of their students. This designation is known as a STEM School of Distinction and interested schools should complete their intent to apply no later than Oct. 7, 2022.
DPI believes these schools “represent the very best in STEM education in North Carolina.” Elementary, middle, and high schools are all eligible to apply.
Do you think your school falls into this category, but don’t know where to start? Check out the STEM School Progress Rubric, which serves as a self-assessment tool for the recognition.
This rubric focuses on five overarching principles: student opportunity, classroom environment, school structure, school culture and community connections.
The STEM recognition intent to apply form for the 2022-23 school year can be found here.
