Boulevard earns STEM designation
For years, Boulevard Elementary School has been a STEM-focused school, and now the designation is official with the Ohio Department of Education. The school joined the ranks of the Ohio STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Learning Network, receiving word of the accomplishment in late April.
Boulevard is one of just four schools in Cuyahoga County, and one of 21 elementary schools in the state of Ohio, to have the official STEM designation.
“Congratulations to Boulevard on earning this significant designation. The staff, students, and Boulevard community should be proud of this accomplishment,” said CH-UH Superintendent Talisa Dixon. “We do not want ‘one-size-fits-all’ elementary schools in our community, so we appreciate the importance of having STEM schools to equip our students with an educational background in science and technology. I commend Boulevard principal Dr. Michael Jenkins and STEM program specialist Jackie Taylor for their leadership in this process.”
