Through her dual role as the Culver School District superintendent and its elementary principal, Stefanie Garber is bringing big changes to a little school district. Garber has established a partnership with Oregon State University Cascades Campus to move the district to becoming a K-12 STEM district. STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) education combined with community partners has transformed education in the Culver School District. In the two years since its implementation, this unique partnership has positively impacted the community and increased real world learning opportunities for Culver students. Best yet, this high rigor model is replicable for other districts.
