Wyoming Educational Attainment Council Statewide Discussion
Wednesday, November 21, 2018
The Wyoming Educational Attainment Executive Council, created by Executive Order on August 23, 2018 by Governor Matt Mead, will conduct nine facilitated sessions throughout the state on November 29 at the community colleges and the University of Wyoming. The sessions are specifically designed to focus the state’s approach on the needs of local communities. All sessions will take place from 6-7:30 pm.
The Council is aggressively moving forward with developing the five-year and 10-year educational master plan to reach the state’s educational attainment goals established in Governor Mead’s ENDOW initiative as a major strategy to diversify Wyoming’s economy.
The public sessions’ focus is to gain crucial perspectives from stakeholders throughout the state to identify the barriers residents face to access and complete higher education certificates and degrees. The open forum discussions will seek perspectives from attendees for specific strategies to create a college-going culture from K12 to working adults.
The Council will also provide a Facebook Live link for participation from individuals who are unable to attend a session at one of the nine locations. The link for the Facebook Live session is www.facebook.com/ENDOWyo/ and individuals can access the link on November 29, from 6 pm until 7:30 pm.
