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:

  1. Connect students with employment, internship, job shadow, and other work-to-learn opportunities in the region.
  2. Create at least 1 annual event for the region for the above.
  3. Educate employers about the benefits and state requirements for these opportunities.
  4. Gain input from the business community regarding needed workforce development efforts in our schools.

For more information, please email Dr. Podell at
