Director of Curriculum and Educational Technology Audrey Lee presented information to the MUSD Board about the Project Lead the Way Courses.
The curriculum, approved by the Curriculum Advisory Council (CAC) on January 6, approaches teaching and learning through activity, projects, and problem-based curriculum. These courses are STEM-based and offer students the opportunity to explore content, identify problems, and find unique solutions. The program also offers teachers a rigorous professional development model.
All these rigorous courses meet University of California A-G requirements, are accessible to all learners, and can earn students 6 units of college credits. At the meeting, the board approved the Project Lead the Way. These classes will be included in upcoming catalogs, promotional materials, and parent meetings. Staff also hopes the middle school will have a feeder program in the future.
