Inspire, Educate, Employ.
SOESD provides innovative STEAM learning opportunities in collaboration with business and industry partners that motivate students through project-based learning in the classroom, after-school programs, and summer camps.
The College and Career for All (CC4A) initiative leverages, coordinates, and supports relationships with stakeholders in K-12, higher education, business, industry, and community to bring rigor, relevance, and authentic learning experiences to students in pre-school through post-secondary education.
Efforts to coordinate college and career related learning experiences for educators, community partners, students and their families are supported by CC4A. Examples include developing advanced and dual credit opportunities at various high schools, supporting Career Technical Education (CTE) programs of study, and facilitating high quality STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities such as summer camps, robotics or innovation competitions, and after-school programs. CC4A leverages substantial grant funding, volunteer involvement, and other in-kind resources to provide these service offerings.Read the Southern Oregon Regional Needs Assessment
