North Texas Chapter

Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Designing for Environmental Science Education

This session will illustrate how campus design can enhance environmental science curriculum. By encouraging exploration, curiosity, and collaboration through intentional spaces and hands-on design elements, students gain a foundation for lifelong learning. This session will use the PK-5th grade Lorenzo De Zavala Environmental Science Academy for Grand Prairie ISD as a case study.

As a TEA designated District of Innovation, Grand Prairie ISD has 22 Schools of Choice and a vast array of Programs of Choice throughout the district. We will describe the district's journey to date and illustrate how the Lorenzo De Zavala Environmental Science Academy fits into this vision.
