Chartiers Valley School District
Marc has been fundamental in helping the school district adapt to a COVID-influenced world. Marc developed and implemented a Cyber Academy for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. At the peak of COVID, approximately 30% of students across the district participated in the Cyber Academy. As education has returned closer to normal, the number of students in the Cyber Academy has decreased, but Marc has worked diligently to ensure a meaningful educational experience for all students. This has included ensuring Cyber Academy students feel involved with in-person learning activities. Beyond the Cyber Academy, Marc is working to increase Computer Science initiatives across the district and has worked with state and national leaders to improve the programming. Beyond the district, Marc volunteers with 3 local groups that help promote science education across the region. He has served as the chair of one of the societies and oversaw many committees to promote innovative science activities. Marc has focused funding on outreach to underserved schools and organizations with these organizations. Marc loves to cruise and would be thrilled with this recognition!
