School District Of The City Of York
District unveils proposal for STEAM Academy at Edgar Fahs Smith school
The School District of the City of York is making big plans for the 2017-18 school year!
The Academy, open to students district-wide, would offer York City students and families a different educational option. The focus of the Academy will be project-based learning — an innovative education strategy that emphasizes problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Project-based learning empowers students to take control of their education and promotes learning that is meaningful to each student.
Since 2009, the district has offered a STEAM program at Ferguson K-8. The Academy would build on the success of Ferguson’s STEAM program and expand its reach to more students.
The Board of School Directors will consider the superintendent’s proposal at its meeting Wednesday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. For more information, see the full proposal here.
