STEM Education and 21st Century Vocational Education
Over the last three years, SOAR board members have met with businesses, leaders, and local colleges to attract jobs to our districts by creating 21st century vocational education programs in our schools. We are currently working with Project Lead the Way, the leading educator in STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Missouri S&T, and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks to bring STEM education into our school districts.
BROADBAND IN UNDER-SERVED AREAS
SOAR board members worked with numerous electric co-ops and internet providers to acquire Connect America 2 funding for rural broadband in our districts.
