The goal of the Santa Clara County Office of Education’s STEAM Initiative is to promote high-quality instruction by supporting teachers and administrators through inspiring and fostering imagination, innovation, and integration. The STEAM Initiative provides teachers and administrators with innovative professional development learning communities in science, mathematics, English language arts, engineering, visual and performing arts and career technical education. The Santa Clara County Office of Education directly supports the COE’s goal to reduce limited access to quality educational programs by working closely with districts, community organizations, and foundations to enhance and elevate the learning experiences of all students.
