FVTC Summer Summits – 2018

This summer join your FVTC articulation partners and other high school educators for focused collaboration time and training activities designed to prepare you for teaching Dual Credit course content. During your summer summit event, program teams will engage you in a variety of activities from curriculum updates and software or equipment training, to industry data specific to the course you will be teaching. It is critical that content rigor is maintained once a Dual Credit course begins and FVTC is dedicated to preparing you for a successful journey as you begin to teach on the FVTC team!
