Caddo Science Announcements
Louisiana Science Standards: Approved by Bese
Louisiana must build science standards strong in content that prepare students for their future, whether that be post-secondary education in a STEM field, a position in the industrial workforce, or as citizens who influence agricultural, petroleum, and environmental decisions. Louisiana has adopted new science standards.
Congrats to QSM RECIPIENTS
The Quality Science & Mathematics Grant Program (QSM) awards up to $750 for the purpose of providing materials and equipment to mathematics and science public school teachers in Louisiana.
We are excited to announce that 29 teachers in Caddo were awarded QSM grants to improve math and science instruction in their classrooms. We are especially proud of all Caddo teachers who wrote grants to improve science learning. If you weren't awarded this year, try again. The science department will be happy to help. Hopefully, we'll have even more teachers submit grants next year!
