Skyline High School has received national certification for its Project Lead The Way program that it has offered since 2010. “Rather than sit passively by and listen to a lecture – kids are building, developing and creating,” said teacher Tom Pachera. “It’s the kind of hands-on experience that will engage more students in science, technology, engineering and math.”

Scarlett Middle School eighth-graders got a taste of multiple career choices during the school’s annual Portfolio Day, which teams students up with local professionals who share their expertise about the working world. Also this month, the A2Y Chamber honored the program with its Exemplary Educational Endeavors award.

Nine Ann Arbor Public Schools elementaries will have new principals due to retirements and shifts in personnel and two middle schools will get new assistant principals for the 2011-12 school year. All of the new appointments are internal in the district.
