North Learning Community Partners in Education Summit set for April 26th from 8A-12:30P at Lake Forest Church
The purpose of the NLC Partners in Education Summit is to build strategic partnerships among the North Learning Community Schools, local businesses, faith-based organizations and civic groups. The Summit will provide information about opportunities to help:
• Develop sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships
• Create career pathways allowing all students to realize their full potential and maximize their contribution to our community
• Promote workforce development to strengthen the foundation of our economy
At the Summit, CMS schools from the North Learning Community will showcase college and career preparation initiatives. Attendees will interactively engage with these programs and their student participants, including horticulture, culinary arts, automotive, engineering, and hospitality and tourism.
Please join us as we begin our journey toward more effectively connecting our schools and students with key resources in our community.sss
