Caston Elementary School is one of 310 schools in the country to be recognized as a 2020-21 Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Distinguished School for providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through PLTW Launch.
PLTW is a nonprofit organization that serves millions of students and teachers in schools across the U.S.
“We are honored to receive this recognition,” Caston Elementary principal Jennifer Lukens said. “Our teachers have embraced PLTW because they see the value of the engaging hands-on curriculum, along with the students’ desire and enthusiasm to create, ask questions, and want to learn more”.
The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access, engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs. To gain eligibility for the designation, Caston Elementary had to have more than 75% of the student body participating in the program and had to offer at least two PLTW Launch modules at each grade level during the 2019-20 school year.
