2022 NOAA Grant

Posted On: Friday, September 09, 2022

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has awarded the York County School Division (YCSD) $225,000 through its highly competitive grant application process.

The grant program entitled, Fostering Bay Stewardship by Building Capacity to Lead Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs), supports the division’s mission of ensuring every student is valued, supported, and challenged through learning experiences, which prepare them for a successful future.

Over the next three years, YCSD will partner with the James River Association (JRA) to deliver rigorous professional learning for 4th and 5th grade teachers through a combination of classroom and field experiences so they may systematically integrate MWEEs into the curricula. Teachers will design and implement performance assessments that require students to demonstrate proficiency of scientific skills through their engagement in MWEE activities.
