• Now in its fourth year, Explore 2018: A Community, Curriculum and Career Expo is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 12 at a new location, the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. This free daytime event will be offered on a weekday for the first time and will be specifically aimed at educating eighth graders about the connection between U-46 middle and high school classes and opportunities that best prepare them for further education and careers following high school graduation.

  • The Citizens’ Advisory Council (CAC) helped launch the expo four years ago. Since then, members of the Alignment Collaborative for Education (ACE) have helped expand the expo by recruiting local business and industry leaders to showcase career options, demonstrate skills used in those fields and explain what courses will prepare students to work in a particular area.  ACE is an organization that helps bring together community experts and resources to better support U-46 students so that they leave high school prepared to be contributing adults eager to live and work in their community.

    For information about how your organization can become a expo sponsor or exhibitor, please visit the ACE website at www.align4edu.org.
