Business and Education Partnership
The Downingtown Area School District is a proud founding member of the Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce Business & Education Council (BEC). Coordinator of Career Readiness 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, open to all students in 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
