Teachers

Before STARBASE:

STARBASE dates are selected a semester in advance by school principals. If you are unsure of your scheduled dates, please contact us or your school’s principal. You may also contact us directly if you’d like your class added to our waitlist.

Under the Forms section on this page, please complete and return the Class Roster with requested demographic information. You will also see Teacher Guidelines and the Student Permission slips with an attached letter to parents.

Teachers will also be required to participate in a STARBASE orientation prior to the first visit. At this orientation, we will review some of the activities your students will be doing, discuss our behavior policies and expectations, and review suggested extension activities.

During STARBASE:

Teachers are expected to actively participate with their students, assisting with groups or as needed and directed by STARBASE staff. Please refrain from grading papers, or other school work while you are here. Please also note, cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed in the classroom. Teachers and guests may briefly step out of the classroom if needed to use personal electronics.

After STARBASE:

Please consider having students extend their learning. Suggestions will be provided. Letters of thanks to our Congressional Representatives are always appreciated, since STARBASE receives federal funding.
