AUTHORS: Mike Wagner, Loudon County Public Schools

ABSTRACT: The Geospatial Semester is a unique partnership between high schools in Virginia and the Integrated Science and Technology department at James Madison University (JMU).  High school seniors participating in the Geospatial Semester take classes on geospatial technology in their home school and can earn credit from JMU.  A key aspect of the program is a focus on local projects connecting students, technology, and their community. Mike Wagner, lead teacher for GIS in the Loudon County Public Schools, will share his county’ implementation model for this exciting program.
