What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our community has a variety of entities involved in the eduactional system such as eighteen school districts, a Board of Cooperative Services (BOCES), three post-secondary institutions, foundations, business, government and a wealth of non profits. In an effort to align these important stakeholders to achieve improved outcomes the CCEC has three primary goals: 1. Education: Improve educational outcomes at key points along the learning system. 2. Economics: Enhance opportunity for Chautauqua County’s economy to grow through retention and attraction of employers and people. 3. Partnerships: Increase learning system effectiveness through stronger alignment, synergy, and resource sharing. The overarching short-term and long-term goal of the Coalition is to maximize human potential with our community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Chautauqua County Education Coalition (CCEC) is a dynamic public-private partnership made up of 125 stakeholders representing 70 organizations that is the catalyst for collaboration around four components within Chautauqua County’s educational system: Early Childhood, Middle School to High School Career Pathways, Current Employer needs and Community Collaboration.

CCEC Goals are as follows:

1. Education: Improve educational outcomes at key points along the learning system.

2. Economics: Enhance opportunity for Chautauqua County’s economy to grow through retention and attraction of employers and people.

3. Partnerships: Increase learning system effectiveness through stronger alignment, synergy, and resource sharing.

The CCEC Board of Directors is a group of diverse stakeholders from the public, private and social sectors.

Through a community process the CCEC identifies catalytic projects that will enable our community to meet outcomes such as:

• Meeting labor needs of employers
• Improve the tax base
• Reduce poverty
• Reduce the number of children in poverty (Reduce number of children receiving free-reduced lunch through increased household income)

The CCEC is building partnerships to assure that we are ‘community ready’ for opportunities that advance our learning system and lead to job retention and job growth. For the past five years the CCEC has been mentored under the tutelage of CivicLab, based in Columbus Indiana.
