Sci-Matics at Buck Mountain Central School

Teachers Shelby Bend, Linda Kwirant and Nicole Townsend updated the board regarding their innovative Sci-Matics course developed at Buck Mountain Central School.

Sci-Matics was recognized as part of the board’s commitment to celebrating excellence.

Teachers presented positive student feedback and increased results, with a desire to build on it next school year.
