School Safety

The back-to-school season is a good time for administrators to review emergency plans with staff and for parents to review safety rules with their children. We want to share with parents and community members the safety protocols currently in place across the county and in our schools and to reassure them the safety of our children is our top priority.


STEAM Center

The SMCOE STEAM Center provides teachers and administrators research-based professional development in STEAM content and pedagogy to engage, educate, and inspire our 21st century learners.
