A new environmental science class will be offered next year at the Storm Lake High School.
The school board has approved adding Advanced Ecology to the science curriculum. Principal Beau Ruleaux says the year-long class would focus on problem-solving. It would be offered to students in grades 10 and 11 who have already taken Biology, and Ruleaux says Chemistry would also be helpful.
The high school is receiving funding from the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture in Ames… which will help pay for equipment and teacher training.
