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.
