$110,000 Awarded to Williamsfield Schools for STEM Courses

Williamsfield Schools is extremely excited to announce our selection to receive $110,000 from Project Lead the Way! This grant will fuel our continued effort to revitalize STEM classrooms and curriculum. The funds will be used over 3-years and will help us create the engaging, hands-on classrooms that empower our students to strengthen their STEM knowledge and skills. Teacher training, curricular materials, and classroom equipment/supplies will be purchased with this generous award. This money will go a long way in helping us create the new STEM Lab our students, staff, and community deserve.

We can’t wait to see the positive impact this money has on our teachers, our courses, and our kids!

A Spark in Williamsfield: Open Education One Year Later

It's hard to believe it's been a year since the US Department of Education came to celebrate our use of Open Education Resources (OER). Since that day, 72 districts and 16 states have followed our lead and made the move to #GoOpen. Please take a moment to click the pic and read Andrew Marcinek's reflective piece on his trip to Williamsfield and his work with the U.S. Department of Education. And to quote Andrew, "...there are still many voices that need amplification. I hope you can join me in helping lift these voices up and continue to make small dents towards equality and equity in education. Our work in just beginning."

How Williamsfield Schools decided to #GoOpen

STEM Students earn more hardware!

In a competition of over 200 students, our team placed 2nd in our division at the WYSE (Worldwide Youth in Science & Engineering) Academic Competition! Hunter Aldred placed 1st overall in Biology and Garrett Wight earned a 3rd overall in Computer Science. The strong finish earned the team a spot in the WYSE Sectional Competition at Knox College on March 14th. We couldn't be more proud of our students as they continue to demonstrate the innovative things happening here at Williamsfield Schools!
