Children who are ready for kindergarten are more likely to stay on track and in school. And teens who finish high school are more likely to be employed. When we help our region’s children prepare for school, finish school and pursue higher education or training, we lay the foundation for a brighter future for us all.

The State of the Community uses five indicators to monitor educational achievement in our region. These indicators allow us to assess and report progress towards our community’s Education Bold Goals, which measure our community’s progress in providing access to quality education opportunities that prepare today’s young people to succeed.

The most commonly requested indicators and data from The State of the Community can be found to the right.
