STEAM Academy Survey for Elementary Parents

Posted: July 22, 2015

Midlothian ISD is exploring the possibility of creating a STEAM Academy held at one elementary school to serve student interest in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics through hands-on, project based learning. STEAM exposes students to content knowledge, critical thinking and innovation.

Elementary students who are interested will complete an application and participate in an annual lottery selection process.

The purpose of this survey is to determine the level of interest from parents who have elementary students. The information gathered will help the administration develop a plan that meets the desires and needs of the parents and district. A detailed discussion and more information will be presented at the School Board meeting August 17, 2015.

* Survey ends August 9, 2015
