We are proud once again partner with Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) to implement the 2019 Summer Externship Program. The five-day externship program consists of a one-hour orientation meeting in May, three days on-site with a business in June or July, and a program celebration in August. We are requesting participation from chamber investors in this exciting program to bolster our talent development efforts in the region. This year’s program will place seventy-five educators.
The externship program is a professional development opportunity for educators (teachers, counselors, and administrators). The experience and knowledge gained at partner businesses will be brought back to the classroom via educator-developed strategies that integrate what they learned during their time “in the field.” The goal is to match educators with employers in the teacher’s subject matter and/or a subject matter of interest.
Last year’s participating business partners reported an excellent experience in the program. One company shared that the externship program is a “great opportunity to influence how future students are educated through collaboration, communication, and partnership.” Another company noted that this program affords the “ability to learn and grow together as community partnerships.”
If your company would like to host an educator, please contact Amy Mizcles for more information.
