The Kansas Governor’s Education Council met to report out on the work of four subcommittees on June 26, 2018. Per Kansas Executive Order 18-10, four subcommittees were formed around the charges given to the Governor's Education Council by Governor Colyer. The charges include the following: explore methods for integrating college and workforce preparedness into K-12 learning programs that align with and compliment the work of the Kansans CAN initiatives of Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE), consider the application of public-private partnerships in developing industry specific learning goals, inventory and assess existing workforce development initiatives within the state, and discuss a system for measuring effectiveness and accountability of educational opportunities beyond the common and known metrics. A sub-committee was established for each charge. Representatives from KSDE were placed on each sub-committee. The Central Comprehensive Center (C3) Kansas Technical Assistance (TA) Liaison is a member on the sub-committee to consider the application of public-private partnerships in developing industry specific learning goals. At this meeting, the C3 Kansas TA Liaison was honored to help as a facilitator and share the ideas generated by the group in order to create a vision statement for the Governor’s Education Council.
