The Community Education Coalition

The Community Education Coalition (CEC) is a Workforce Development initiative with the vision "to develop a strong community where all individuals have the opportunity to grow and prosper." The CEC is a partnership of business, education, and the community. A Guiding Coalition was established to lead this initiative and determined areas of priority to address: Early Childhood Education and Employability

Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Education Coalition is focused on education in children from birth to third grade. Currently, two subgroups are working on this initiative:

The Early Learning Partnership is a group of providers that meets monthly to discuss issues facing early childhood providers as well as share resources and knowledge.
The Early Learning Committee is a group of business leaders, providers, and community members working to support and promote quality early learning in Franklin County

An Early Childhood Expo is being planned for April 22, 2017 as a kick-off to the national event – The Week of the Young Child.
