What is a Goal Group?
FRC brings together organizations and individuals who are working on similar goals. These are our Goal Groups:

  1. Early Development: Ensure all children are Kindergarten ready.
  2. School Success: Ensure all youth are provided support during their elementary and middle school years.
  3. College & Career Success: Ensure all young people are career ready by graduating high school on track to obtain a degree or credential.

In November, our Goal Groups met in person after almost 2 years of virtual meetings! Conversations and catching up continued well beyond the meeting times. We had guided discussion and broke out into Priority Teams on details. Priority Teams currently include:

Early Learning Quality & Access // Family Educational Resources & Supports // Literacy Supports // Developmental Screenings // Kindergarten Transitions // Family & Student Support // Out of School Activities // College Access // Work-Based Learning Experiences // Family Cohort Support Program

Goal Groups are led by Co-Chairs representing different organizations.
Priority Teams have lead conveners to keep the projects moving.
Meetings are held quarterly, or as needed.

Save the Dates: The next Goal Group meetings will be held February 10-11, 2022.
Wishing you a lovely holiday. See you in the New Year!
Champions For Learning is the backbone organization supporting the network.
