Many districts support the attendance of their teachers to the SIRC program:

  • Ask your district Science Coordinator or Curriculum & Instruction administrator.
  • Ask your school principal.
  • Ask your school Parent Teacher Association for support.
  • Add SIRC to your Personal Professional Development Plan on file with your district.
