Cannon Elementary Named STEM School of Excellence
Posted on 02/04/2021

GCISD is proud to announce that Cannon Elementary: A GCISD STEM School has been named a 2020-2021 ITEEA STEM School of Excellence. Cannon is one of just 10 schools in the nation to earn the distinction, and the only in Texas to do so.

Presented by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA), the STEM School of Excellence program recognizes outstanding schools for their commitment to providing a robust Integrative STEM education program.

Cannon Elementary will officially be awarded the distinction as part of the ITEEA’s Virtual Annual Conference in March. 

Schools recognized as STEM Schools of Excellence exemplify outstanding leadership in the field of STEM education. Recognized schools undergo a rigorous application process requiring detailed documentation to demonstrate a strong Integrative STEM program. A panel of reviewers reach consensus that the documented evidence represents excellence in Integrative STEM education.

ITEEA created the designation as a way to officially recognize those schools whose teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders are providing a meaningful STEM education experience for students. By highlighting these schools, ITEEA hopes to help others learn effective best practices and continue sharing them more broadly into the larger STEM Education community.
