Unbridled Education Summit
Career and College Readiness Planning Meeting
August 27th 2011
As a partner in the Math-Science Partnership and funded by an Improving Educator Quality Grant from CPE, schools around the state were invited to participate in this unique, effective planning experience, to create a career-college readiness plan. Participating schools walked away with three carefully selected objectives and activities in order to achieve those objectives for the 2011-2012 academic year, as well $2,000 in in resources to assist students in college and career planning, which includes a classroom set of The Real Act. Travel was reimbursed, a $100 stipend was paid to the staff members and every student recieved a $100 gift card graciously donated by Coffee Tree Books of Morehead, Kentucky.
