(1) WE HAVE A DROPOUT PROBLEM IN WAYNE COUNTY
In 2007, Wayne County saw 110 students drop out of school. Only 57% of those who had entered as freshmen four years earlier graduated.
Having Communities in Schools personnel imbedded in the schools in Wayne County is making a great difference in what the Chamber of Commerce can support. Since CIS is keenly aware of the needs of the schools and the organizational structure, “Chamber Business Education Leadership Links” can be more effective in making the connections with our members to help fill the needs.
