Georgia Department of Education provides STEAM certifications to whole schools or programs within schools. This guidance document provides definitions to help schools understand what is included in a STEAM education. The STEAM Georgia webpage, where this document is housed, includes other helpful guidance documents to support schools in becoming a state-recognized program.
This document and the webpage that houses it provide very useful information to help schools and districts implement STEAM programs. The documents also serve as a model for other states interested in creating a similar system. STEAM certification materials are organized by grade level span: elementary, middle, and high school. Within those grade spans are presentation slides that provide the process for certification and a continuum document rubric that describes the level of STEAM implementation, from pre-implementation to full implementation. For school-, district-, and state-level educators interested in developing and implementing STEAM programs, this is an excellent site.
