Region 17 is fortunate to have a strong community of Science Educators! Teachers throughout our region are highly motivated to continue their own learning which, in turn, helps to increase student learning. Our service center is committed to providing our teachers with the highest quality professional development. In addition to professional development we provide on site support for our campuses and science educators.

Science Teachers Association of Texas
STAT is a statewide organization of elementary, middle level, and high school teachers, college educators, supervisors of science, and others dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of science and education in our schools.
Performance Level Descriptors
These charts will help educators understand the depth and complexity required at each performance level. These charts are an example of how the state is wrapping content and process skills. These are not exhaustive charts of what a student should learn at each grade level. The state standards should guide instruction.
