Science Point of Contact (SPoC)

KSTA is seeking classroom teachers or coaches who agree to serve as a Science Point of Contact (SPoC) for their school and/or district.  The SPoC will serve as a liaison for receiving key information (2-3 contacts per month) to improve science teaching and learning, and getting that information into the hands of those who have the opportunity to make the biggest difference in learning:  the classroom teacher.

Examples of information that will be shared directly with SPoCs: direct email from KDE related to science opportunities, grants and professional development, sharing venue for regional science opportunities, opportunities for regional science involvement.

The SPoCs will develop greater networking in their region, as facilitated by their elected KSTA Board Member District Director.  SPoCs will be identified by a special badge during the Annual Conference, listed in the conference program, and attend a meet-and-greet with KSTA Directors and KDE personnel.

Why Science Points of Contact are Needed:

  • Serve as an ongoing mechanism to share communication with classroom science teachers
  • Develop local and regional science leadership in support of high quality, 3D learning for All students, aligned to the KAS for Science
  • Develop local and regional science leaders

Requirements for Science Points of Contact:

  • Current position as classroom teacher/coach or a faculty member in a Kentucky college or university
  • Maintain a current membership in KSTA
  • Share information from KSTA with all science teachers in your school
  • Notify your District Director if you change schools or districts, or if you plan to retire/resign
