Copper Country ISD honored as One of six school districts chosen for water initiative funding through From Students to Stewards program

Copper Country ISD is one of six school districts in Michigan that have been selected to receive grants under the From Students to Stewards Initiative that will teach elementary through high school students about the Great Lakes, Michigan watersheds and the impact people have on water resources across the state. The Copper Country Intermediate School District will use the funding to establish and lead a Water Literacy Consortium for the western Upper Peninsula and organize a regional summit to identify best practices and share success stories for water-focused, place-based education. In addition, the Copper Country ISD will expand teacher professional development opportunities and build on the existing framework of Meaningful Water Literacy Learning Experiences offered through the vision and support of the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative.
