The East Baton Rouge Parish School System invites you to join us in a dedication ceremony for the Eva Legard Center for Coastal and Environmental Studies on Thursday, July 19, 2022. We will be dedicating this site and sharing the new opportunities being provided to students, families and the community.
This innovative program is in partnership with LSU to provide specialized knowledge, skills and resources to develop a rigorous, project-based outdoor model to engage students in a STEM-focused environment. The goal is to develop and implement an instructional model that increases student awareness of their environment from a scientific perspective and expand the pipeline of potential future scientists and researchers with a solid understanding of environmental issues and challenges in Louisiana.
The event will provide a broad overview of the Focus Choice Schools model as a component of school choice – a critical and essential aspect of every urban school system to provide enhanced opportunities to students throughout the district. Community members will be able to engage teachers during presentations at activity stations and refreshments will be provide.
We are excited to share all of these new opportunities with students, parents, staff and the community, so please mark your calendar and plan to attend.
