  Be the next STEM School of Distinction




Many schools across our state facilitate quality STEM instruction; maximizing community partnerships and driving opportunities for students, developing the skills necessary for future success. NCDPI and the North Carolina State Board of Education want to recognize each and every school that exemplifies the qualities associated with STEM success. The STEM School Progress Rubric serves as an incredible tool for self-assessment and school improvement and is the key to achievement for STEM schools in North Carolina. Schools who self-assess at the Prepared or Model level of achievement, based on the rubric, are encouraged to complete an Intent to Apply with NCDPI. This intent does not obligate the school, but instead, allows the opportunity for receiving additional information and resources toward becoming recognized as one of North Carolina's finest in STEM education.

Interested schools should complete their Intent no later than Oct. 11, 2019. Contact Howard Ginsburg should you have further questions.
