150105 geauga principal thumbnail with caption - updatedEarly this spring, schools in Ohio’s rural Geauga county came together to create a proposal.  They asked the State of Ohio for funding to create a new school for students in their community.

That school would build on everything we’ve learned about how to build experiences for kids that prepare them for the jobs of the future.

It would educate students through:

  • transdisciplinary learning challenges where students solve real world problems
  • early college and career tech classes in STEM fields that lead to credits for college degrees

The Ohio Department of Education backed Geauga’s proposal. (See Jean Bonchak’s article in The News Herald.) A team from the Ohio STEM Learning Network has been working closely with educators and administrators from Geauga to sketch early plans for this school.

Now, they’re ready to take applications for this school’s first principal.

Can you help us find the next person to create a STEM school for children in this community?
