What We Do

The LCEC functions as a networked improvement community (NIC) that partners with local business and industry as well as the philanthropic community to improve student outcomes. The LCEC uses the definition of NICs as defined by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The LCEC is a “community of common accomplishment” meaning we exist to accomplish clearly defined, measurable outcomes. In the LCEC’s case those outcomes are tied back to our work with the regional accountability system that is designed to measure student progress on the career and college readiness metrics.
