Anchorage School Partnership Program Executive Exchange participants to share their experiences


December 1, 2011 -- The 2011  Anchorage School Business Partnership program's Executive Exchange Event took  place throughout the month of November. More than 60 business people from a  wide range of industries were paired up with ASD school administrators. The  matched pairs were asked to job-shadow in each other's work locations for part  of a day.

The objectives were to become more  knowledgeable about contemporary successes and challenges in education and  business; to discuss the specific needs and demands for a quality education and  a well-trained work force in the 21st century; and to develop  strategies for Anchorage's business and education communities to work together.

Participants will share their  experiences during a luncheon on Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at  the King Career Center,  2650 E. Northern Lights Blvd. Lunch will be prepared and served by KCC’s  Culinary Art students.

The Anchorage School Business  Partnership, which began in 1991 as a joint venture between the Anchorage  Chamber of Commerce and the Anchorage School District, has grown from 28  businesses to 500 partnerships throughout the city. Partners provide schools  with guest speakers, classroom volunteers, on-the-job work experience for  students, material and monetary resources, and other special activities.
