Mayor Brennan Launches Portland ConnectED Today
What: This morning, City of Portland Mayor Michael Brennan will announce the creation of Portland ConnectED, a community initiative designed to create pathways to success from cradle to career for all Portland children, students and residents. Last spring, Forbes named the Portland region as the sixth best area for professional opportunity in the country with an increasing number of high-skills, high-wage positions needing to be filled.
Portland ConnectED brings together a unique, cross-sector partnership of
organizational leaders committed to building a citywide cradle-to-career
infrastructure and culture to support high quality education—for Portland’s
youth, for Portland families, and for the Portland community at large.
Together, we are working like never before to coordinate efforts, align
resources, and harness local, regional, and national expertise to prepare our
citizens to meet the challenges of the future.
