The Communications and Connections group, formed in 2006, includes superintendents, teachers, faculty, staff, and other educational partners.

Mission: To establish an aligned, agile, regional system of professional learning that meets the unique educational needs of children and the broader demands of a global society. This group was instrumental in creating and analyzing data from focus groups of graduates and employers.

Based on data gathered over a 2 year period, the Communications & Connections partners established four design teams. Click HERE or on the 'Design Teams link at left to learn more!
