Business and Education Partnership
The Downingtown Area School District is a proud founding member of the Downingtown Area Chamber of Commerce Business & Education Council (BEC). Curriculum Supervisor Dr. Troy Podell, and Career Center Adviser Mrs. Christine Wick, both represent the District on the BEC.
The goals of the BEC are:
- Connect students with employment, internship, job shadow, and other work-to-learn opportunities in the region.
- Create at least 1 annual event for the region for the above.
- Educate employers about the benefits and state requirements for these opportunities.
- Gain input from the business community regarding needed workforce development efforts in our schools.
