CENTER FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
IN CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION
announces
the 2007 ACADEMY FOR FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCES EDUCATORS

This year, the FCS Academy will take place in two parts.  Part 1 will be a Relationship Education curriculum training on June 21 & 22 at Lehigh Carbon Community College. Once again, Lydia Hess, FCS Program Specialist, has been able to access training funds through PDE, Bureau of Career and Technical Education, for this special activity. As was last years curriculum training, this is open to all FCS educators from the eastern half of the state. These funds were only available to us through June 30, but the FCS Advisory Committee advocated that we take advantage of this money. This decision was made even though it meant we had to split the Academy into two segments.

Part 2 of the Academy will resemble our traditional academy offerings. This year, we will meet in a new building on Temple Ambler s campus for a potpourri of topics on Monday, August 6. The next day in Part 2 of our Academy, August 7, will be an educational excursion. When arrangements are finalized, you will be able to access information and a separate registration form for Part 2

One thing will remain as always-- the opportunity to network with old friends and share best practices with colleagues. I look forward to welcoming new participants into our circle of Academy regulars on Thursday and Friday, June 21 & 22, at Lehigh Carbon Community College. We will then reconvene for our usual gathering at TempleAmbler in the new LearningCenter on Monday, August 6 and for our excursion the next day on Tuesday, August 7. I hope you will be able to participate in at least some, if not all, of these exceptional educational opportunities.

Regards,
