Career Education and Work Standards Symposium

An event for York County educators focused on the Career Education and Work Standards. This event encourages empowerment by providing each educator in attendance with four impactful, relevant lesson plans to adapt to the grade level in which they specialize, as well as valuable resources to utilize in their classrooms.  Event registration is open to all teachers K-12 affiliated with our K-12 Partner Schools.

The 9th Annual Career Education and Work Standards Symposium was held on THURSDAY February 7, 2019 at the York County School of Technology.  The event is typically held from 4PM - 7PM, with dinner being served at the beginning of the event.  A date has not yet been selected for 2020, but we look forward to offering registration here on this page for the 10th Annual Symposium later this year.
