Teachers should be stoked because Act 48 credits and valuable knowledge are heading their way with the Career Education and Work Standard Symposium. On February 26, 2013 from 4:30-7:45 PM Red Lion Senior High will be hosting this 3rd annual event.
This Symposium will touch on Career Awareness, Career Acquisition, Career Retention and Advancement, and Entrepreneurship topics for lesson plans to teach all grade levels. The grades will be broken into K-3, 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12.
Throughout the evening there will be a guest speaker and dinner provided.The sections for grades will meet, and when each teacher leaves they will have four made lesson plans. They will also be able to network with teachers from around the county.
Mr. Cook and Mrs. Morris of the Business Department are forming this event with its sponsor YCAL (York County Alliance for Learning), who also sponsors the mentoring program.
“It’s a privilege to host this symposium, and to have the county come to the school to showcase what we have planned,” said business teacher Mrs. Morris.
They are expecting roughly 200 teachers from across the county to come to Red Lion.
