Pricing Information for Schools and Districts

Through a generous investment by the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation, Mi-STAR has developed a middle school STEM curriculum and associated professional learning program to serve Michigan educators and their students. To ensure continued access, Mi-STAR will implement a subscription fee starting July 1, 2019.

Since Mi-STAR began, we have learned that fulfilling our mission to transform STEM education across Michigan will require us to facilitate ongoing support and collaboration among teachers who are transitioning to the three-dimensional instructional approach required by the Michigan Science Standards (and the Next Generation Science Standards). We know that the Mi-STAR curriculum and professional learning program have to be dynamic--they have to change and adapt based on feedback teachers provide. Teacher feedback helps improve Mi-STAR, making it readily adaptable to various situations.

Teachers who are associated with Mi-STAR are connected to a virtual network of individuals who are committed to improving education in Michigan. A subscription to Mi-STAR is an investment in our students, in our practice as educators, and in the future of Michigan.

Pricing for 2019-2020 School Year

Enrollment will begin May 1, 2019

Districts should budget for subscription fees, which will be instituted July 1, 2019, for access to the Mi-STAR curriculum, associated professional learning, and support features such as our expert-led community forums and curriculum helpline.

Mi-STAR actively seeks funding to keep fees as low as possible. For the 2019-2020 school year, a grant from the MiSTEM Advisory Council has allowed us to provide subscription scholarships for up to 1000 Michigan teachers. For these teachers, the subscription fee will be reduced from $250/teacher/year to $50/teacher/year for the period July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
