Local and State Policy Platform - Education

Ensuring that our community’s youth have a strong academic foundation along with equal and ongoing opportunity for educational success is key in the development of our future workforce. We support investments that will strengthen access to quality early childhood care, early education, and K-12 Education and that align postsecondary programs with employer needs, including a focus on STEM and CTE opportunities. Career Technical Education (CTE) opportunities for students are crucial to integrate real world examples and opportunities that help all students to graduate from high school college and career ready.

Early Care & Education

Studies show that investments in early education set the foundation for learning, ensure school readiness and narrows the persistent achievement gap for the region’s most vulnerable children. This is the best investment we can make locally to improve outcomes that increase cost savings in education, health, economic productivity and crime reduction. We support policies that encourage an investment in quality early education and care.

K-12 Education & Postsecondary Access

We support the alignment of A-G requirements and CTE opportunities, so that all students will have access to pathways to sustainable jobs and careers, and support efforts to leverage our region’s higher education opportunities that meet our region’s workforce demands for education and training in science and technology.
