This will be the fourth annual U-46/Alignment Curriculum and Career EXPO. We welcome enthusiastic and inspiring professionals who can talk to students at the Sears Centre and who can help demonstrate the connection between academics and careers.
EXPO is just one element of a comprehensive approach to preparing students for college and careers. U-46 guidance counselors, teachers, and parents can help students select high school courses and extracurricular opportunities that can best prepare them for the path they’d like to explore.
This year, the event will expand to include a parent showcase the evening before on September 10th. Exhibitors and community leaders are invited to a VIP reception prior to the parent showcase to network and to celebrate the shared commitment to students and our community’s future workforce development.
