Thank you for your interest in Cohort I of the West Dallas STEM School. The current grant cycle begin in June 2019 and will include partners from The School Zone in West Dallas. Future cohorts will include service providers beyond The School Zone.

Wraparound Service Providers

A key feature of the PK-8 West Dallas STEM School is the inclusion of co-located and nearby wraparound service providers to meet the interconnected educational, social and emotional needs of its students and families.

To support this aim, three (3) cohorts of service providers will be selected during the planning phase to build their readiness for possible participation at the STEM School. Each organization will receive a sub-grant during their cohort year allowing staff to attend professional learning sessions and develop their proposed innovation plan, outlining the expansion of programs and/or services into the STEM School.
