Ed White E-STEM Magnet School parent information meeting planned

2018 application online now

Does your elementary student have an interest in science and enjoy problem solving? If so, the Ed White E-STEM Magnet School in the Clear Creek School District may be the campus of choice for them.

E-STEM is an acronym for Elementary – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Students in E-STEM schools participate in a highly enriched curriculum that focuses on STEM subjects. They are expected to think critically and solve real-world problems. E-STEM schools have an increased focus on engineering through basic design application and technology that is infused throughout the entire curriculum.

E-STEM education is implemented in every grade level for students who attend Ed White Elementary as their home school. In addition, the school district has approved the addition of extra spaces in kindergarten for students who are in CCISD but outside the Ed White attendance zone. The students for these spaces will be chosen through an application process and a lottery system. Students in grades 1-5 may transfer into the program through a first come, first served transfer request as space allows. See Student Transfers, and CCISD Policy FDA/FDB (LOCAL) for more information.

A parent information meeting is scheduled at Ed White Elementary STEM Magnet School, 1708 Les Talley Drive in El Lago, April 23 at 6 p.m. in the school cafeteria.

The application deadline is 3:45 p.m. on May 18. Students who complete the online application by the deadline will be entered into a lottery system to determine which kindergarten students enroll in the E-STEM magnet school. The lottery will take place electronically on May 25. Transportation will not be provided for students unless zoned to Ed White Elementary. Parents may contact Laura Mackay at lmackay@ccisd.net or visit www.edwhite.ccisd.net/estemprogram for more information about the program.
