We’re thrilled to see Greater Clark County Schools partner with Ford Next Generation Learning! Ford Motor Company’s NGL program is a unique and comprehensive community initiative that brings together educators, employers, and community leaders to implement a proven model for transforming secondary schools, which ultimately improves the regional workforce development system. Ford NGL is currently working with approximately 30 communities throughout the country.
Ford NGL has played a pivotal role in the tremendous success of the model site in Nashville, Tennessee. Two teams of GCCS representatives also visited Nashville to observe the Ford NGL implementation. In April 2016, Ford NGL’s top coach out of Nashville visited GCCS and toured Charlestown High School and Jeffersonville High School, met with sixty school and community leaders, and finished the day by meeting with Building Leadership Teams from all three high schools.
Joining the Ford NGL network is a tremendous opportunity that will enable Greater Clark County Schools to evolve its successful College and Career Readiness efforts by creating sustainable systems of community engagement and secondary school transformation. A major transformational focus is the development of a career academy model that will increase relevancy for students and better prepare all students for post-secondary opportunities by creating direct pathways to regional colleges and businesses.
Greater Clark County Schools Educational Foundation has provided funding to help with the Ford NGL planning and application process and remains committed to continuing College and Career Readiness programs such as WorkKeys, ACT testing, and grants to job fairs, project discovery, and technology. We are proud and honored to be a part of the Ford NGL Network as we work together to help all of Greater Clark County Schools drive toward the future.
