Round Rock Chamber Continues Focus on Employer and Educator Engagement

The Round Rock Chamber partnered with the Career and Technical Education (CTE) team at Round Rock Independent School District (ISD) to launch a new summer series: Coffee Connections. This virtual series aims to connect educators with industry experts over eight sessions this summer to discuss how to better align classroom education with employer needs. The Chamber’s workforce strategy emphasizes employer and educator engagement which is vital to better prepare our workforce pipeline and set businesses up for success.

Last week concluded the first four sessions of the series. Over 60 educators participated in facilitated conversations with four different business partners:

  • Round Rock Police Department
  • Round Rock Independent School District Police Department
  • Anchor-Ventana Glass
  • Lott Brothers Construction

The remaining sessions will take place the week of July 26 through 29 with four different business partners highlighted.

All Round Rock ISD teachers are eligible to participate in the remaining sessions and will receive professional development credit. They can contact the Program Development Office at the ISD for more information, info@rrisd.org.
