The Education Alliance is kicking off their 40th anniversary by calling on the community leaders to share their school-business partnership experiences through focus groups. Businesses and schools that nominate their school-business partnership to participate by Jan. 31, 2023 will be featured in a full-page ad later that year.
This research marks the first phase of establishing The Caperton Center for School and Business Partnerships, an entity designed by the Education Alliance, to develop and sustain school-business partnerships in West Virginia.
While the COVID pandemic undoubtedly put stress on West Virginia’s schools and workforce, Dr. Amelia Courts, president/CEO of the Education Alliance, looks to The Caperton Center as a way for schools and businesses to work together to build a brighter future for students.
The Education Alliance was founded in 1983 with the purpose to mobilize business support for public schools. Just last year, the organization leveraged $2.5 million in resources for schools and served 14,180 students in West Virginia.
School and business leaders who are interested in participating or hosting a focus group can sign up here or contact Robert Crawford at email@example.com. The deadline to apply is Jan. 31, 2023.
