Penn College’s Outreach for K-12 Office hosted its semiannual College and Career Readiness Conference on campus Tuesday. The event offers opportunities for educators to participate in roundtable discussions on topics designed to help them prepare their students for life after high school, attend an educational session on a “hot topic” and learn through campus tours about the offerings available to their students. The event’s Hot Topic session was titled “Promising Practices on the K-12 School Counseling Plans.” A school counseling plan is required as part of the Pennsylvania School Code. The session was presented by two schools in the second and third year of implementing their respective plans.
