By April 30th, 2019, all schools within the London City School District will be designated as STEM schools by the Ohio Department of Education. In order to accomplish this goal, the district will achieve the following benchmarks:
Identify the portraits of a current and future London High School Graduate.
Engage students in meaningful problem-based learning across the curriculum and in each school.
Establish educational pathways, which include internships, linked to high demand careers, that are supported by partnerships with local industries and higher education partners.
Support problem-based learning, creativity, and personalized learning through the redesign of educational spaces and co curricular programs across the district (i.e. Makerspaces, Robotics, etc.).
Provide effective professional development to all district stakeholders to support problem-based learning, capacity building, and to enhance the change process.
Plan for sustainability by securing grant funding and establishing pathways which receive weighted funding from the Ohio Department of Education.
