Great Opportunity for YCS Paraprofessionals
A collaborative program has been set up for districts in Washtenaw County, between the districts, Washtenaw Intermediate School District, and Eastern Michigan University. This is a collaborative program where paraprofessionals can earn a teaching certificate at little or no cost. A new cohort will start in the winter of 2023. The program will enable a paraprofessional to earn a teaching certificate with a Learning Disability endorsement.

FIRST Robotics Engineering Principles
The idea for the YCHS STEMM Middle College grew out of work with our FIRST Robotics Team 66. Using FIRST principles, engaging our students in engineering principles to design and compete in FIRST Robotic Competitions allowed us to design a highly competitive robotics program, from which our drive to build a STEMM Community arose. FIRST (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science and Technology) is the backbone of this Middle College. FIRST’s mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership (www.firstinspires.org).

The Ypsilanti STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Manufacturing) Middle College offers a rigorous, relevant and technologically advanced learning experience for all students. Businesses, community partnerships, and STEMM-based electives are used to create and incorporate real-world experiences in the learning process. Inquiry and project-based instructional best practices are implemented to ensure every student accomplishes their goals.
