STEM Academy for Administrators

The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) is pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate in the eighth annual cohort of the STEM Academy for Administrators. We have repurposed and redesigneed the experience to assist principals, directors, assistant principals, STEM Leaders, and curriculum leaders in leading STEM efforts in their schools. The purpose for this academy is to increase capacity, identify instructional "look fors" for both formal in informal observations in STEM courses, network with other administrators, increase awareness of available resources, and more. The academy will require participants to commit to five all-day sessions spread throughout the school year held at various locations throughout the state. Sessions will include classroom observations and visits to schools and other STEM sites. For this opportunity, there is no distance learning option available. Participation between sessions will keep us connected throughout the year. Intersession participation may include conducting informal classroom observations, visits from USBE staff, or other STEM related options.
