BACKGROUND

KATYC is a K-12 education program that uses transportation related themes to address multiple curriculum areas. The programs offered through KATYC are flexible in design and align with the Maine Learning Results. In addition to classroom presentations, KATYC also provides classes for educators and resources that teachers can use in the classroom. KATYC is sponsored by the Maine Turnpike Authority and located at the Southern Maine Regional Planning Commission.

 

 

MAINE LEARNING RESULTS

KATYC believes that in order to have value in the classroom, we must align all offerings with the Maine Learning Results. To that end, all presentations, teaching resources and teacher classes are built to target identified Performance Indicators. All presentations are accompanied with a list of specific Performance Indicators addressed that day.

Staff will work with teachers to develop appropriate assessment tasks.

VARIETY OF OFFERINGS

Our goal is to help teachers provide their students with information that helps them understand the content of a given unit of study. We do not require that our staff have a presence in the classroom. Teachers, therefore, may ask us to present or may access the program for information that they themselves will integrate into the classroom. To this end, we offer assistance in different formats, including:

  • Classroom Presentations
  • Resources and Activities
  • Access to Information
The 2004-2005 Program Description details the presentations and activities that are offered by KATYC.

 

 

FREE

All programs, except the Summer Transportation Institute for Educators, are offered free of charge to schools and educators.
