An integral part of the Choice Planning Process is the working group. The Working Groups function as subcommittees of the Steering Committee.
The five Working Groups are where the solutions to problems are found and initiatives to transform the neighborhood generated and considered.
Meeting #1 – Sept, 12th 2018
Following a presentation by Bill James of Camiros, the Education & Workforce working group met and began to frame the “why” portion of the problem solving dynamic by identifying 4 key elements of the positive experience we need to create in order to transform the area into a neighborhood of choice. Camiros created a strategy guide that the group used to craft their response.
The group came up with:
- Strong Community College with Workforce Training & 2 year College Degree Training
- Schools which compete on test scores & state report cards
- Strong School extracurricular activities – sports, other physical activity, updated technology lab, etc.
- Positive School/Business Partnerships
