It will receive the funds in installments of $10,000 for the 2018-19, $15,000 for the 2019-20, and $10,000 for the 2020-21 school years.
Teacher Brian Ulkloss, adviser for the STEM team, will develop a course curriculum with assistance from Project Lead the Way.
Ulkloss, whose team took third place in the Governor’s STEM challenge, wrote the grant proposal for the school.
Assistant principal Richard Mitchell believes the grant will push STEM forward in the school and district.
“I am very happy for Mr. Ulkloss and the prospects that the Project Lead the Way grant holds for our students,” said Mitchell. “We are excited to be able to offer such important curriculum for all of our students to enrich their interest in STEM subjects.”
This opportunity has been welcomed by staff members at the school. They will be encouraging students into the new class, which will be open for registration in the spring semester.
