BISD Board Approves STEM Certification Plan
Trustees also voted to move forward with having North Richland Middle School designated as a certified Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) campus. In order to qualify as a STEM-certified campus, all of the math and science teachers will be immersed in a year-long training experience that assists them in understanding and aligning their practices to the research which defines quality STEM instruction. Training for staff includes face-to-face and online sessions, as well as onsite coaching visits by STEMscope consultants.
Dr. Elizabeth A. Clark, Associate Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, said, “Birdville ISD wants to embrace, implement and support innovative approaches that expand the opportunities for students and staff to personalize and enrich learning that goes beyond what the state uses in accountability.”
BCTAL Culinary Department pulled out all the stops for the last CTE Liaison Meeting - presenting a beautifully displayed and tasty meal for all involved.
CTE Student received the
Rising Star Award
Taylor Hamilton, a junior at Birdville High School received the Rising Star award from Tarrant County College (TCC) this month. The award is given to outstanding business students that attend TCC. This is the first time that they have offered this award to a high school student, but Taylor is a dual credit accounting student who is currently carrying a 100 average in that class. This honor also has a scholarship award to Texas Wesleyan attached. Taylor and his mom were invited to a luncheon in his honor on Friday, November 11th (which coincidently was also his birthday) – Congratulations Taylor!!!
