Presentation Description: 
This session will focus on how Orange County (OC) set up a regional approach to two important issues, PLC for CTE and Industry Engagement. As a director of CTE for a K12 school district of 22,000 students, successfully addressing these two issues is basically impossible for even a medium sized district like ours. Thus we pulled together representatives from all OC districts, Tech Preps, ROPs, and community and business partners to provide a regional approach. We created an OC Extended Edition to this conference to launch this program. Learn how to replicate this for your region.
