All STEM assignments will be completed in class due to the materials and equipment required.  If a student is absent  please complete the Career Investigation Worksheet and/or the Technical Writing Worksheet listed on the left menu.  STEM projects will be assigned to be completed in class instead of homework.  Thank You and have a Great STEM Day!


    CTE Re-teaching & Reassessing Policy

    Module RCA surveys will be able to be repeated during Session 6 (test review day), after session activities are complete.  RCA surveys may also be repeated during Session 8 (make-up day).  If a student scores below a 70% on the Post Test of a module, her/she are required to take the test again during the make-up session.

    Unit tests and/or safety tests with scores of less that 70% may be repeated to acquire better mastery of the content.
