STORM Self-Certification Survey
Please take our brief annual survey to let us know how you participated this year and what you would like to see in 2015: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NRDKZ8F We will provide information from this survey at our next quarterly meeting in February.
Drain Ranger Update
Thank you to all who were able to attend the initial meetings and provide such wonderful feedback! Lessons, videos, and materials based on this feedback are currently being developed for use in elementary and secondary classrooms. The next steps will be to provide the teacher training, implementation as a demonstration in selected classrooms, and get the information online and readily available for use. The intent is to have these materials available along with contact information and programs for each jurisdiction to help teachers in your area connect with you in the future. We might be contacting you to obtain this information and any additional content you might wish to add.
