Middle School Survey Request from the SkillsUSA National Level

Dear Middle School Teacher/Advisor:
Thank you for your support of SkillsUSA. We are seeking insight into how to better serve middle school students and would value your voice in this conversation.
SkillsUSA is investigating additional programming to increase the benefits of middle school membership. We value our middle school members and the instructors and advisors who teach and lead those students. Your insight will weigh heavily in any future programming we develop. Please share your thoughts candidly in this survey so that we can better understand your chapter and its needs.  The survey will be open until Friday, December 16.
Thank you for your dedication and commitment to leading a SkillsUSA chapter.


The Best Way To Build A Successful SkillsUSA Chapter

You know you’re having a great year in SkillsUSA, so why not be recognized for it? Did you elect officers, hold chapter meetings and engage in chapter activities? Then take it to the next level: complete the Chapter Excellence Program Quality Chapter application and receive the recognition your chapter has earned.
Start your SkillsUSA Chapter Excellence Program (CEP) application today and earn recognition for your chapter. The online application is on the main page of the membership registration site. Once you log in to your school account, follow these directions for accessing the application. We’ve also developed the “Build a Successful SkillsUSA Chapter Teacher’s Guide 2.0”. The guide offers simple and easy steps to follow on completing the application, engaging students in the process and infusing the SkillsUSA Framework into chapter activities.
For questions or help, contact SkillsUSA Customer Care at 844-875-4557 or by email. You can also take advantage of a one-on-one coaching session with our CEP and Program of Work (PoW) coach, Kelli Engelbrecht. Schedule your 30-minute Zoom coaching appointment here, or call her at 573-321-1322. During the coaching session, learn how to integrate the SkillsUSA Framework, articulate your SMART goals and select and evaluate Essential Elements within your CEP application.
