Kenneth M. Young, Riverside County Superintendent of Schools, this week announced that the Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE) has been awarded a $332,000 federal grant to benefit science students and teachers in its Career Technical Education (CTE) program.

 For students, the grant will be used to support a CTE Science Careers course at Norco High School. In this course, students will learn about what it takes to obtain a career in science. They will also have the opportunity to intern at high-tech companies and receive real world experience in science careers.

 For teachers, the grant will provide special training in science instruction. It will also pay for teachers to attend a summer institute in science instruction offered through Cal Poly Pomona.  The grant will pay for teachers to spend time at high-tech companies and see how their classroom instruction connects with real world job applications.

 The grant was made possible by the Fund for the Improvement of Education (FIE), which supports "programs of national significance" and was obtained by RCOE with the assistance of Congressman Ken Calvert.
