Since the first meeting, the CCEC has committed to assuming the shared responsibility of regional educational efforts and shared responsibilities to foster change, achieve coherence in their curriculum, and promote success for students past high school graduation.

…the CCEC is guided by these four goals:

  • Ensure academic success for all students, P-16
  • Educate and promote career pathways and access to post-secondary education.
  • Ensure all students graduate from high school prepared to enter the workforce and/or succeed in two-year or four-year colleges or universities.
  • Increase opportunities for all students through a community network.
