Today, educators from across Colorado will unveil their drafts of the newly developed, career-ready capstone performance tasks. These industry-aligned tasks are a promising resource to help high school students graduate ready for career and life success.

Educator Voice Fellows will present their performance tasks to teams of expert guests, including former State Senator Mike Johnston, Denver Public Schools Deputy Superintendent Susana Cordova, former President of CareerWise Colorado Gretchen Morgan, and a variety of other industry, education, and civic leaders. The panelists will ask questions and provide feedback, and audience members will be encouraged to participate as well! We hope you enjoy the morning of learning, networking, and fun.
