Kelley’s Island Collaborative

Professional development for Cleveland Metropolitan School District teachers is conducted at the new Kelley’s Island Field Station and at the West Creek Reservation (Cleveland Metroparks). Teachers focus on the best management practices for nutrient control and the relationship to harmful algal blooms; the relationship between habitat and biodiversity; and storm water management practices. Teachers, in turn, will instruct their students to address ecological problems using Biology, Environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The work of the fifteen teachers involved will potentially impact 1500 8th – 10th grade level students. Those students also have the opportunity to spend time at Kelleys Island and West Creek to engage in the same science as their teachers.
