Union City, Indiana – Randolph Eastern School Corporation announced today (04/30/2020) that it has been recognized as a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Distinguished District for providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through its PLTW programs. It is one of just 24 districts across the U.S. to receive this honor. PLTW is a nonprofit organization that serves millions of PreK-12 students and teachers in schools across the U.S.
It is a distinct honor for Randolph Eastern School Corporation to receive this recognition. Without the unwavering support of our teachers and students this recognition wouldn’t be possible.
The PLTW Distinguished District recognition honors districts committed to increasing student access, engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs. To be eligible for the designation, Randolph Eastern School Corporation had to have had 20 percent or more of its students in each grade, PreK-12, participate in a PLTW program during the 2018-19 school year.
Through PLTW programs, students develop in-demand knowledge and skills that they will use both in school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take. As PLTW students progress through grades PreK-12, they are empowered to engage in problem-solving and process thinking, develop technical knowledge and skills, build communication skills, and explore career opportunities.
Randolph Eastern School Corporation offers PLTW Launch (PreK-5), PLTW Gateway (6-8), and PLTW Computer Science and Engineering at North Side Elementary and Union City Jr./Sr. High School
“It is a great honor to recognize Randolph Eastern School Corporation for their commitment to providing students with an excellent educational experience,” said Dr. Vince Bertram, President and CEO of PLTW. “They should be very proud of their work to ensure students have the knowledge and skills to be career ready and successful on any career path they choose.”
Randolph Eastern School Corporation is part of a community of PreK-12 schools, colleges and universities, and corporate and philanthropic partners across the country united around a passion for providing students with inspiring, engaging, and empowering learning opportunities.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a mission-driven organization that is transforming the learning experience for millions of PreK-12 students and thousands of teachers across the U.S. PLTW empowers students to develop in-demand, transportable knowledge and skills through pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. PLTW’s teacher training and resources support teachers as they engage their students in real-world learning. Approximately 12,200 elementary, middle, and high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia offer PLTW programs. For more information on Project Lead The Way, visit pltw.org.
Currently, Brandy Neargarder and Keith Maloy lead this program with a group of twelve (12) students. Mr. Maloy reports that working with students who need this kind of help requires patience and a special temperament. However, at this early stage of the program, the students have achieved excellent results. Mr. Maloy also reported that over 60 credits have been earned by the current students in the AC since the semester began.
The AC also frequently plans special "hands on" activities and monthly field trips to give the students opportunities for learning the life lessons young people need before they enter the "real world" life of adults. Last Friday (October 4), the AC "turned up the heat" and completed a "how to" cooking adventure. Then yesterday (October 9), the AC visited the Levi Coffin House and Museum in Fountain City, the Fountain City park, and a local Pumpkin Patch that offers admission for freewill donations (another life lesson for the students).
Looking further ahead, on October 29, the Community Foundation of Randolph County scholarship committee will submit the results of their scholarship application process to Independent Colleges for approval. Then, in December, the CFRC scholarship committee will visit the school of the top winner and announce the 2020 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship results. In other words, with Katie and Derick representing Union City Junior/Senior High School, we have a 40 percent chance that the committee will announce their final results here. Congratulations to Katie and Derick for the successful results of their committed efforts for excellence!... and looking forward to the strong possibility of having the CFRC committee visit Union City in December!
