Working Together: Connecting Schools, Higher Education, and Businesses

ROOM: Hall of Ideas G


Jason LeMay, Former High School Principal, Pardeeville School District; Crystal Huset, High School Counselor, Pardeeville School District

Attendees will learn about how one rural school district brought together public educators, business leaders, and postsecondary professionals to align local career and technical education opportunities to regional business employment needs through curriculum, youth apprenticeships, youth options, site visits, and the development of strong partnerships. All parties involved are given the needed tools to help students be successful and ready for whatever future careers and challenges may arise. Additionally, attendees will learn how the Pardeeville School District created a Rural Central Columbia County Initiative where it brought all the stakeholders together to form and strengthen their connections via an end of the year summit, which included inviting five other neighboring rural school districts to broaden the overall impact.
