County School Board Favors Expanding STEM Enrollment

Some members of the Albemarle School Board favor expanding the enrollment in science, technology and math programs commonly called STEM. Jason Buyaki (pictured) says more kids are voicing interest in specialized STEM classes at Albemarle High School. Eric Strucko has told Superintendent Pam Moran he hopes the current space limitations won’t discourage qualified students. Moran and her senior staff are working on budget recommendations for the next academic year.
