Recaps and resources for you

The State Board of Education will meet next week, March 6 and 7, in the 7th floor Board Room, Education Building, 301 N. Wilmington Street, Raleigh.

The agendas for this meeting and executive summaries are available online.

From our colleagues at the NC Early Childhood Foundation:

Imagine a North Carolina where:

  • Businesses attract and retain the best talent.
  • Employees have workplace benefits that support their family, especially their children’s healthy development.
  • Our next generation workforce has the skills and knowledge to succeed.

At the Family Forward NC Summit on Monday, April 1, the NCECF will explore how to achieve this vision by supporting and inspiring employers across the state to increase access to research-based, family-friendly practices — big and small — that improve workplace productivity, recruitment and retention; grow a strong economy; and support children’s healthy development.

Registration is open for this event, which will take place from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the RTI International campus in the Triangle. The Family Forward NC Summit is for business leaders, employers and community leaders statewide who want to attract and retain top talent, support child health and well-being, help close the skills gap and support future workforce development.
