Summary of Education Priority
The Education Priority Team developed a strategy map to address the factors that affect education over the course of an individual’s lifetime. Learning begins before the child enters formal learning programs and continues through post-secondary education and other adult learning opportunities. In order to develop successful students and to support a productive and educated citizenry, our city government, families, and the community-at-large must commit resources, financial and otherwise, to support education from preschool through adulthood. To address the priority statement, the team created a map around 3 primary factors: Early Learning/School Readiness, Support of K-12 Educational Programs, and Adult Learning.
