Staff Report

Career Education Associates of North Central Illinois (CEANCI) will host an Industrial Technology Round Table from 9 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Jan. 15, at Anderson Japanese Gardens, 318 Spring Creek Road, Rockford.

The purpose of a Round Table is to create the curriculum framework and content of high school career and technical programs (CTE), and develop a workforce with a specific skill set that aligns to local industry needs.
