  • Academy of Engineering - Project Timelines Fall, 2006 Pilot site RFP distributed to target urban districts seeking to yield up to 10 pilot schools. Open houses organized at an existing PLTW school site (PLTW can facilitate.) January, 2007 Have interested school counselors) attend PLTW counselor conference at RPI. February, 2007 Completed Proposals due to NAF. Joint NAF/PLTW/NACME committee screens proposals, Pilot sites conditionally approved. March – May, 2007 Pilot sites visited to confirm capacity and readiness and conduct orientation to PLTW and NAF Year of Planning Process. Following Site Visit Schools sign NAF Services Agreement Organizes Planning Team, Register for NAF Summer Institute School registers with PLTW online. District signs PLTW school agreement. School selects and registers a teacher for professional development. School completes Academy Readiness Profile, and a gap analysis of existing equipment and orders lacking equipment. School signs and returns PLTW Software Lease Agreement and leases required software. Summer: Teachers attend PLTW Summer Training Institute. Planning team (teachers, school leaders, district staff and business partners) attend Year Of Planning work session at NAF Institute. Fall, 2007 Classes commence for pilot academies as part of the YOP training. Teachers begin using the PLTW Virtual Academy as needed. Integrated academic/engineering modules developed and piloted throughout school year. NAF Planning Activities including web-conferences, on-site visit, and development of programmatic deliverables. First local advisory board convened (with support of NACME) Winter, 2007 - 2008 Finalize program of study, student recruitment plans and class schedule requirements Spring 2008 Conduct student recruitment; develop school schedule supportive of academy goals and program integrity, Staff selection and orientation. Summer 2008 Teams attend NAF and PLTW Institutes Fall 2008 Academy accepts students into 9th grade cohort. 2008-2012 One grade per year added to pilots through graduation and full academy implementation Academy of Engineering Expected Growth of Academy of Engineering Growth may continue at a measured pace after the 2010-11. If the number of AOE academies levels off at 110, they will ultimately graduate approximately 8,800 students per year. These graduates will be better prepared to succeed in post-secondary engineering and engineering technology, even though many were not chosen from the “academically elite” (upper 10% of the student population.)
  • In the document – NACME Planning and Strategy – there is a detailed explanation of the content of each of these programs.

  • STEM theme: The academy will center its course curriculum on science, technology, engineering and math. AOE will be a four-year high school program implemented in public schools selected by application. The guidelines for this new academy included: Either stand-alone or small learning community in an urban school district/environment Small, 400 student four-year high school – implemented one grade per year at each location (9 th Grade) AOE must be open to all students – no pre-qualifying tests Agreed policy for admissions - student expresses interest in theme and enrolling in the school Must have a separate leader and independent, dedicated and qualified staff across all disciplines. Approval by the school district. Degree of autonomy negotiated with school district and significant Budget authority.. AOE will not be a set of drop-in courses. Every student graduates ready for success at a four-year institution.
