Leaders from local education institutions meet to discuss how to better integrate K-12 with higher education opportunities
On February 4, 2011, representatives from Whitfield County Schools, Dalton City Schools, Dalton State College, Georgia Northwestern Technical College, the Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce, and local industry met to begin a conversation about how to better integrate our K-12 systems with our higher education resources. The group brainstormed about ways to expose high school and middle school students to the higher education options available to them in this community. In addition, the group discussed different tactics for easing the transition between high school and post-secondary education. Representatives from each of the institutions agreed to continue to meet to discuss how they can work together towards these objectives.
