Gov. Bentley Forms Career Ready Task Force
Gov. Robert Bentley is creating a task force aimed at helping students better prepare for successful careers.
The governor signed an executive order Tuesday in Columbiana forming the College and Career Ready Task Force. He says it will bring together representatives of K-12 schools, two-year and four-year colleges and the business community to help the state offer a more coordinated approach to workforce development.
State Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice says the task force is another step toward making sure Alabama students have the knowledge and skills necessary to move seamlessly from high school to college or the workforce.
Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey, House Speaker Mike Hubbard, Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh and state Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield are co-chairs of the task force.
