The Chamber is a partner in the Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative (TCCC). TCCC is a community-wide effort in our region, focused on improving the quality of life of its citizens and its workforce through education by collectively aligning resources and working toward common goals. Using data and focused community collaboration across a continuum from “cradle-to-career,” TCCC works to build and implement strategies that will facilitate widespread systemic change, with the ultimate goal of increased student success and economic prosperity for all.
TCCC has asked the Chamber to serve as the regional convener of the high school graduation network, a group of local public and private organizations collectively working to identify the barriers to successful high school graduation and strategies to raise high school graduation rates.
A kick-off of the network was held in early March with work to continue over the next several months in understanding the reasons for the region’s 81% high school graduation rate and what are root causes to help improve education outcomes.
