2018-2019 ACEC Working Board
Every month, ACEC convenes STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math), CTE (Career Tech Ed), PSWR (Post Secondary Workforce Readiness) directors from the seven districts to better guide its work. These individuals are an integral part of executing ACEC’s programs in the districts and aligning ACEC programs with education imperatives. This partnership ensures that the skills students receive from ACEC programs strengthen the PSWR initiatives, student ICAP (Individual Career Academic Plan), 21st Century Skills demonstrations, and Graduation Guidelines.
