The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in coordination with the Illinois Center for Specialized Professional Support (ICSPS) will be hosting a five-day-long virtual event on May 3-7, 2021 highlighting career paths within career and technical education. The goal of the career palooza is to inform, educate, and expose current high school students to the benefits and opportunities within a CTE program of study across Illinois. This event will create an opportunity to discuss what career and technical education is and how it can impact their future.
