All students in Eastern Idaho will obtain a post-secondary credential leading to economic empowerment.
- Create a PR Campaign to:
- Educate our community about the value of post-secondary credentials of any kind
- Clearly define some specific pathways to high demand jobs available in Eastern Idaho for the next ten years
- Increase professional development to high school college & career counselors about the varied pathways to post-secondary credentials
- Create an online resource for students and parents of opportunities to explore pathways to high demand jobs for the region
In March of 2020, the Education to Careers Committee began the rollout of their first strategy. Target River Marketing developed a robust campaign that ran for 3 months and included a significant amount of data collection. They are now in the process of developing materials for phase 2 of the PR campaign which will begin in November 2020.
Community feedback from the first phase included a need for easy access to resources that support families and students in exploring their post-secondary options, availability of funding, and some concrete action steps to prepare for the next step in their education.
The committee is using Fall 2020 to finalize SMART goals and develop a formalized action plan that will be used to plan the implementation of strategies.
