FIRST in Your School District

Hello teams!!!
I was just wondering if any school district is totally involved in FIRST?
How many schools does your district have involved in FIRST?
And what does your team plan to do to get your entire school district involved in FIRST?

If you all could just let me know I would be grateful! Thanks!
Have a great week!!!

Re: FIRST in Your School District

There are eight high schools in Richland County School District One (A.C. Flora, Columbia, Dreher, Eau Claire, Heyward, C.A. Johnson, Keenan, Lower Richland). Of them, two (Columbia and Keenan) have FRC teams; one is a career center that serves the other seven. The lone charter high school in the district, Richland One Middle College, fielded a team in 2005 and folded afterward. My alma mater, School District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties, fields a combined FRC team for the three schools in the district.

We have no firm plans to push for growth within the district, as we're still trying to establish a stronger presence just within our area. (Richland One is huge.)

Re: FIRST in Your School District

1 FRC team, and as of this year, we started 1 FLL team. Also 1 FLL team at a local private school. Pretty much nothing in the neighboring districts as well. We hope this will change soon.

Re: FIRST in Your School District

The Appleton Area School District has three high schools, all of which have students on the NEW (Appleton North, Appleton East, Appleton West) Apple Corps Robotics Team. We've been that way from our beginnings 12 years ago. Were we to grow into a larger team I'm sure we would split and form multiple teams but at present this is the most cost effective, functional way to run the team.

The NEW Apple Corps and FIRST Robotics was the inspiration for the formation of Tesla Engineering Charter School within our district. The school is home to 97 students (119 next year) who have an interest in learning more about engineering and technology and plan to pursue post-secondary education in engineering. The school also has an after-school class (for credit) that introduces new team members to what FIRST and our team are all about and gives the returning members the opportunity to prep for the upcoming season. We've followed the Husky Brigades mantra from a few years back - "It's a year round thing!"

Great to see what others have done in their districts!

Re: FIRST in Your School District

We have 2 high schools in our district and both are combined into one FRC team(one school is 9, and 10 the other is 11, and 12). We have 2 middle schools and there is no FLL team(s). We might try to get one started in the next couple of years being that our team started last year and have a small active team. (At least I would like to see a FLL team started in the next couple of years)

Re: FIRST in Your School District

In my school district there are: 2 high schools 2 middle schools and i believe 10 elementary schools. So far in our fourth year team 1629(which draws students from both high schools) has set up 5 Lego league teams for the two middle schools. We also run tech camps that are open to any student down to grade 1. By running these all summer we have been able to reach an amazing number of students.

Our school board is completely behind us on all of these activities. They're our largest contributor for the FRC program and contribute money and mentors to every team in the county. Our Principals and Superintendent have attended almost every FRC competition even traveling to Atlanta. Once our superintendent dress up as our mascot for a banquet. This almost fanatical backing of FIRST programs has lead us to spread FIRST to our neighboring districts with a team started in Morgantown WV (2614 Pitts Champs), and a planned team for next year in Allegany county MD. Our Road Map for rural teams (a list of steps to making FIRST a success in a rural area) emphasizes the importance of a strong backing from the school system and administrators.

It really has been the key to our success as well as our Engineering Inspiration Award

Re: FIRST in Your School District

this year, our superintendent "gets it". He has grasped onto what FIRST can do for the students, the schools and the community. he would like to see an FRC team (or perhaps FTC) at every high school. currently, we have 8 FRC teams in our county with all schools (private, public and home schoolers) having the opportunity to join. We have several FTC teams and that is where i see the most growth occurring. Team 233 established the state Lego tournament for Florida, held in our county,many years ago and our team continues to sponsor, ref, judge, and volunteer at it since turning it over to someone else to run (i.e. raise funds and organize). we have about 4 - 6 local tournaments and even a JFLL tournament.

with the support of our superintendent, he is providing stipends to all teachers involved and sponsoring in some way lego, ftc and frc teams, i expect to see continued growth in our community.

Danville Public Schools has two high schools and both have FRC Teams mostly funded by the school system. We are very lucky -- great support from the top down.

Re: FIRST in Your School District

In the Milwaukee Public School system there are 4 schools involved

Rufus King and Bradley Tech form 1675
Bay View High School is 2547
Washington High School is 1268

So far that's it but our superintendent did stop by during the Wisconsin Regional, so we are hoping on getting more students involved next year ^_^

Re: FIRST in Your School District

1197 welcomes students from four of the five Torrance Unified School District high schools (South, North, West, and Torrance High). The fifth is a continuation school.

So far, I'd say more than 3/4 of the club consists of South students, and the rest from the other three high schools.

Re: FIRST in Your School District

My school district (Tulsa Public Schools) has about 15 high schools but only 2 of them are involved with FIRST, both through FRC. Every school in the district has its own specialty program of sorts. For example my school is an engineering academy. So it is harder to get other schools involved, but we are working on it. We are also hoping to bring a couple FLL teams to our district next season.

But there are 5 total school districts within about a 10 to 20 mile radius of each other. Of those 5 districts 4 of them have at least one FRC team. We are hoping to bring the 5th district into FIRST through FRC next year.
