Summary: The Flying Classroom has presented a proposal to provide innovative summer programming with STEM+ virtual learning for 400 Crowley ISD students.

If approved, our students, under the guidance of Flying Classroom STEM+ coaches, will engage in Flying Classroom expeditions through virtual learning.

Each student will navigate through the Flying Classroom’s STEM+ curriculum in a modified format that promotes explorer engagement, inquiry, and knowledge acquisition in STEM+ through this virtual learning platform.

This customized curriculum aligns activities within the expeditions that will engage our students in literacy and mathematics activities aligned to our TEKS. Students will also interact weekly with Captain Barrington Irving.
Budgetary Impact: $85,000.00 for 400 students.
Recommendation: Recommend approval of the Innovative Summer Programming proposal for STEM+ virtual learning from Flying Classroom as presented.
