KCS STEM Fellows Participate in 'Air Camp'

Three of the Kettering City School District's STEM Fellows -- teachers who have completed the rigorous STEM Fellowship Program through the Dayton Regional STEM Center -- recently had the opportunity to expand on what they learned during their training by participating in an "Air Camp."

Melanie Byers (6th-grade science at Kettering Middle School), Joe Duncan (7th-grade science teacher at Van Buren Middle School) and Ben McCombs (7th-grade science and social studies at Van Buren Middle School) found out about the first-ever teacher Air Camp through the contacts they made during their STEM Fellowships. “We were able to spend the weekend learning about aerospace engineering from some amazing professionals.  We went behind-the-scenes at Dayton International Airport, Wright Patterson Air Force Base and Sinclair Community College’s flight school,” says Byers.

Board Receives Report-Out on Survey

In May, the Kettering City School District contracted with Fallon Research and Communications, Inc. to conduct a community survey, and Paul Fallon of Fallon Research and Communications, Inc., attended a Kettering Board of Education meeting in late August to present the results of the survey to the board.


According to Scott Inskeep, superintendent of the Kettering Schools, the district had not conducted a survey in a number of years. “It is good practice for a school district to survey its residents every couple of years, and to have it done by a reputable firm that specializes in doing school surveys,” says Inskeep.
