Dear CTE teachers, coordinators, and administrators,

It can take time, consideration, and focus to unpack the most recent school year and prepare for the year ahead. For many, that time is summer.

Fortunately, there are CTE professional development offerings for everyone from beginning Fab Lab managers and auto techs to energy pathways and food science workshops. It is an impressive line-up, and summer may offer the best chance to get the focus you need to enjoy it.

We want to especially draw your attention to this year’s Wisconsin Career Readiness Summit, being held August 13 and 14, at the Glacier Canyon Conference Center in the Wisconsin Dells. The event brings together CTE educators, administrators, and industry professionals who are passionate about preparing students for successful careers in today's rapidly changing workforce. Topics include:

  • Developing career pathways that align with industry needs and student interests
  • Integrating academic and technical skills to prepare students for college and career success
  • Leveraging partnerships with local businesses, organizations, and postsecondary institutions to enhance CTE programs
  • Incorporating work-based learning opportunities into CTE programs
  • Implementing innovative technologies and teaching methods to enhance CTE instruction

No matter what you choose, you’ll get some fantastic professional development, and you’ll also connect with the people who understand classrooms like yours.

Register for some PD and start next school year refreshed and prepared!

Your Wisconsin CTE Team
