STEAM Expansion

  • The HMC-1 Board of Education is considering a proposal by the Executive Leadership Team that expands the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) project-based learning model to all schools. This would give students at each school the opportunity to benefit from the program. Students would no longer be bussed to Compass or Millennium and would attend their neighborhood school.

     

    For more information on the benefits of STEAM project-based learning and the opportunities HMC-1's program provides, see our School Choice Expansion booklet (PDF).

       

Alternative Education Proposal

  • One of the budget reductions the Board of Education is considering is restructuring our alternative education, placing all programs in the Burke Support Building.

     

    For more information on the proposal, see the District Alternative Education Proposal (PDF).
