STEM Application Information
The purpose of creating the application is to provide applicants with a clear and consistent delineation of the Parma City School District’s STEM Learning philosophy and program.
The digital application provides a streamlined process for families as well as ease of use, timestamped submissions, and access. For incoming Kindergarten students, once the application is complete and the teacher recommendation has been submitted, the applicant will be assigned a lottery number.
For students applying for STEM Project-Based Learning in grades 1-7, applications will be accepted based on space available. Students MUST be registered in the Parma City School District to be accepted into STEM.
All new students to the STEM Project-Based Learning program MUST complete the online application and teacher recommendation. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of STEM Coaches, building administrators and department of curriculum and instruction.
