 The Grenada School District drew statewide attention this week showing why they have become one of Mississippi’s top schools when it comes to innovation.
State, local and school officials, along with industry leaders, toured the school district Tuesday and saw what it takes to be a district of innovation.
The school district hosted a Project Lead the Way Showcase and attracted school officials from every corner of the state, industry leaders, including top ranked officials from Toyota, Novipax, Entergy Mississippi and the Mississippi Department of Education.
While touring three of the five schools within the district, leaders learned about the impact of a sustainable K-12 STEM program with PLTW and the impact it is having on the local district.
