BUSINESS EDUCATION WEEK
Business Education Week is an opportunity to participate in either the Principal for a Day (full school day shadowing a Principal) or Business Professionals in the Classroom (1-3 hours in a classroom) programs. Business Education Week, sponsored by the Business Education Partnership (BEP), in partnership with the Springfield Education Association, allows Principals, Teachers, executives and business professionals the opportunity to build relationships and create meaningful dialog regarding how our schools operate, challenges, funding and achievement in Sangamon County.
Connect is a web-based, career preparation and readiness platform that links area high school students to local employers, providing them with real workplace experiences. This online tool integrates career development tools, social media elements and workforce data into one seamless system to help companies, students, educators and parents connect efficiently and effectively.
The Connect program outlines the specific education and/or training necessary for student's career interests. Students can then connect their career interests with local companies and their employees who have registered with Connect to offer work-based learning such as job-shadowing, internships, company tours and summer employment.
