Rural Outreach Program

CCEE is excited for the opportunity to expand our reach in Colorado to rural communities. We recognize how challenging it is for faraway teachers to attend our open enrollment classes. So, we invite you to request a professional development workshop, either as groups of independent teachers, as school districts, or through regional BOCES. We’ll do our best to come to you with a workshop in economics and/or personal finance. Please contact Marc Johnson, Education Program Director, at 303-752-2323 or marc.johnson@ccee.net

Customized In-Service Training for Colorado Schools Districts

In addition to CCEE's open enrollment programs, CCEE is eager to work with individual school districts to provide teacher in-service trainings. We’ll do our best to work with you to create a workshop in economics and/or personal finance that fits your needs and is convenient. Please contact Marc Johnson, Education Program Director, at 303-752-2323 or marc.johnson@ccee.net
