The Student Technology LeadershipProgram (STLP™) uses project-based learning principals to empower student learning and achievement through the utilization (and creation) of technology based solutions to school and community needs.

An appointed school coordinator (Mrs. Jessica Sparrow) guides students to create products, provide services or carry out projects that help the school and community.

STLP is open to all students in P-16. No student should be turned away from being part of STLP. Restricting membership is not part of an active recruitment and retention process.

STLP allows students the opportunity to demonstrate what they know in various ways called categories. STLP taps into the students’ interest and can challenge and motivate them.

STLP provides a means for students to design, create, collaborate and learn.
