The Future Ready Alliance (the Alliance) is a network of districts focused on strengthening career learning in their schools and ensuring students have the opportunities needed to achieve state standards for “Future Readiness.” Districts and schools in the Alliance:
- Share best practices regarding the requirements of the state’s Future Ready PA Index,
- Participate in research-based professional development,
- Engage in structured planning and support,
- Collaborate with others in the network, and
- Receive coaching and support from Consortium staff throughout the year.
School stakeholders agree that some of the most important transferable skills students need aren’t formally taught. Through the Alliance, schools develop strategies, opportunities and experiences, not just to help kids learn about careers, but also to develop the transferable soft skills that are essential to future success.
This year’s program is designed to be virtual, with safety top-of-mind during the COVID-19 crisis. Content will be delivered through Canvas, our learning management system, in a combination of recorded sessions, live events, and live office hours to discuss needs and questions. Our commitment remains to be flexible and responsive to the needs of our educators, while keeping what’s best for students as our focus.
The Consortium is committed to an equitable and inclusive fee structure to maximize the opportunities for districts of all demographics to participate. Contact us for your fee category. Costs are prorated to reflect months of participation.
