Racine Unified School District (RUSD), in partnership with Higher Expectations, will bring RUSD teachers and employers together on Friday, October 30th. As RUSD prepares to launch the "Academies of Racine" in fall 2016, RUSD is taking steps to ensure that teachers and students have access to real-world life experiences and opportunities. The professional development day on October 30th will be a chance for teachers to learn about the various occupations, skills and experiences needed to operate businesses and organizations. Armed with this information, teachers can build in real-world lessons into their classrooms.
