STEM Professional Development

Teachers from the Kane County School District had the opportunity to attend computer science programming professional development for their classrooms, which was made possible through a Utah Stem Action Center grant received by the District and Utah State University Extension office. The STEM action grant awarded to the district totaled $127,500. These funds are used for teacher professional development, student summer camps, and purchasing equipment for the USU’s creative underground classroom in the Kanab Center.  We appreciate our partnership with Elizabeth Davis and Angie Reidhead at the USU Extension Office.  Also, teachers had the opportunity to receive additional training from the Southwest Educational Development Center (SEDC) on improving classroom instruction through the integration of technology through online libraries, Canvas, and learning management systems. I would like to thank our teachers for attending the training and a special thanks to the STEM Action Center, USU Extension, and SEDC for providing their assistance with the district professional development opportunities.
