Academies of Cleveland: Business Stakeholder Convening

10.05.15 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
GCP Offices, 1240 Huron Road East, Cleveland, OH 44115

Please join us to learn how your company can contribute to the success of the Academies of Cleveland, a new approach to college and career readiness.

Representatives from the business community are invited to get involved with its design and planning and to help ensure its successful implementation in five Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) high schools.

This program will include an overview of the Ford Next-General Learning (NGL) model and how it can shape the Academies of Cleveland with the business community’s assistance and input.

When: Monday, October 5 from 8 to 9:30 a.m.
Where: GCP Offices, 1240 Huron Road East, Cleveland, OH 44115

Why participate?

Northeast Ohio companies and organizations are looking for qualified employees across a range of industries including health care, manufacturing, financial services, and IT.

However, the talent we need for business and regional economic vitality will not grow without an active partnership among the CMSD, our business and larger communities.

A broad group of educational institutions and nonprofit support organizations are already engaged with these schools and look forward to building on the framework. These schools have enthusiastic leadership that are engaged in the process and teachers that are excited about implementing the model.

Because the Ford NGL model has been developed and implemented in school districts across the country, we also have a network of schools and expertise to support our work.

We hope you will join us for an exciting journey as we embrace a new approach to career academies in Cleveland!
