• A 4-year college degree works for some, but isn’t needed or desired by many. For those choosing this path, job/skills training opportunities MUST be in place that MATCH THE NEEDS OF EMPLOYERS IN THIS DISTRICT.  Otherwise, why would an employer come?  No one skilled do the jobs they need?  Really?
  • Need to ensure we partner with outlets already in place and connect the class with the community. Put resources in place to enable those without to benefit from what we already have here, and what we develop in the future.
  • And we need to understand that the skill-set required by today's employer/workforce, doesn’t match vocational training we had in place decades ago. Programs need to be relevant, realistic, and responsive to the needs of employers and a pathway to a career.
