Special Events

We are celebrating Career & Technical Education Month® every February with several great activities for students in our EIEFES 340 Region

The 8th Grade Career Conference will be back at Lake Land College!  In 2023 we hosted our favorite career speaker and author, Brooks Harper!  He has a dynamic message to share with your students regarding Career Readiness and Turning Earning into Learning!  Check him out at brooksharper.com and on Twitter @brooksharper.  

Be sure to check out the Illinois State Board of Education Career GuideThis 50 page Guide includes exciting updates regarding CTE, Career Pathways and Career Connected Learning.  This is a great resource for your students!  

Additionally, February is a great month to make sure students are utilizing their access to Career Cruising to complete career assessments, explore careers and work on their plan for the future.  Eastern IL Education for Employment System (EIEFES) uses CTE Grant Funds to support student use of Career Cruising at each School District in our Region.    

Together these activities support student achievement as it relates to important objectives in Career Readiness!   


If you have any questions please contact our office at 217-258-6283.


Our schools will receive more details and registration information out at the end of January 2024.
