Planning Your K-12 Career Program
There are many new requirements for schools to implement career programs. Who is responsible for this? How can you plan for a comprehensive K-12 approach where career programming becomes part of the culture of the district?  

Research shows that career readiness has positive effects on student motivation and learning when connections are made between school and the world outside school.
Participants will work with an approach where the reliance is on the synergy of many people touching the career planning model in simple ways. Whether your district assigns this topic to Family and Consumer Science (FCS) teachers, counselors or other teachers, you will learn about many possibilities for infusing careers into each school building.
