Statewide and Regional Perspectives Will Be Provided By:

  • Dan Fogarty, Director of Workforce Development & COO, Berks County Workforce Development Board

The report on High School Career & Technical Education was published earlier this year following more than a year of work by EPLC and an advisory Study Group that included 30 representatives of a wide variety of stakeholder interests and perspectives.

The report includes 43 specific recommendations for several audiences including K-12 and CTE leaders, higher education, the Governor and General Assembly, the State Board of Education, employers and business leaders, and regional and state workforce development boards.

The Forum on October 12 is an opportunity to hear from EPLC, study group members, and others about the report’s findings and recommendations, and to provide your reactions concerning implementation of the recommendations.

While there is no registration fee, seating is limited and an RSVP is required. RSVP on-line at:
