ST1.7: STEM educators collaborate as an interdisciplinary team to plan, implement, and improve integrated STEM learning experiences.

Okatie Elementary School’s Professional Learning Communities meet regularly in bimonthly staff meetings, Instructional Coaches, and within content committees. Each grade level collaborates weekly as a team and department areas during common planning times. The district STEM Coordinator has collaborated with staff to provide professional development and learning related to STEM. Teachers utilize state testing data, such as MAP and SCPASS to drive their instruction and planning and meet the needs of each student in their classroom.
