EMWD's Water Education Program provides in service training to teachers in the 10 school districts and private schools within Eastern's service area. We recommend that teachers receive in-service training in the use of certain water education materials. The reason we recommend the in-service requirements is that these water education materials are comprehensive and complex, and it is important that teachers be given an opportunity to explore the full depth and scope of the materials.
Materials meet the requirements listed in the California State Frameworks for Science and History/Social Science. They cover general concepts appropriate for the grade level. To see which standards are met by our programs, see California Content Standards.
