The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System is hosting the Building Strong and Sustainable Business Partnerships workshop for local business and industry to join forces with local educators. This half-day workshop will focus on the “why” and the “how” of partnerships, helping attendees understand the impact that business partners can have on student outcomes and vice-versa.
“Partnerships are a critical resource for preparing students for the workforce, and all parties involved – educators, employers, and students – can benefit greatly from working together,” Executive Vice President Brett Pawloski of the National Center for College & Career Transitions said in a statement.
The vision of the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System is that all students will graduate college and/or career ready. According to Dr. Bryan Johnson, Chief Academic Officer for CMCSS, “preparing students for success within the post-secondary options of their choosing after graduation is our goal.”
Thom Suddreth, a nationally renowned speaker and consultant with over fifteen years of experience helping communities forge strong relationships between schools and business and industry, will lead the workshop. Thom will facilitate educators and business leaders working together toward a shared goal designed to benefit students while at the same time, achieving goals unique to each partner.
The workshop will be held on July 20, 2016 from 8am to 11am at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center.
