In 2012-2013 Folsom School District adopted a modified block schedule to increase student access to science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics in the middle grades of this PK-8 district. The current press to graduate students who are college and career ready, equipped with the 21st skills of creative problem solving and well-developed communication and collaboration skills, prompted an innovative approach to a middle school schedule that allowed ALL students to participate in the TED (Technology, Engineering, and Design) program utilizing Lego Mindstorms robotics materials; a Digital Photography course taught collaboratively by the Art and Science teachers; an Audio Visual Production course to extend student access to the school's state of the art television studio; and Ceramics studio. This session will include multi-media presentations, sample schedules, curricular materials, and budget information needed to implement similar programs.
