It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Change the Equation's STEMWorks database highlights promising and accomplished STEM programs across the nation, bringing together educators, industry partners, and investors in a powerful collaboration to enhance STEM education for our students. This week, St Vrain Valley Schools' STEM initiatives and Innovation Center (made possible by the US Dept of Ed Race to the Top grant won in 2013) was accepted into this prestigious database - one of 7 programs from Colorado to be accepted during this last round. Colorado Education Initiative was instrumental in seeking and guiding applicants to acceptance, which makes Colorado just one of three states working with Change the Equation to promote and circulate our best practices in STEM education. St Vrain is joined by 6 other amazing local programs in this honor, to include Denver Public Schools' CareerConnect, Keep it Clean - Neighborhood Environmental Trios, KidsTek, Moving GIS into the Classroom, RAFT (Resource Area for Teachers), and Urban Advantage Metro Denver.
Acceptance into this database along with collaboration with other members in this group will help St Vrain advance its already recognized programming to ensure excellence in STEM education and instruction.
