The Big Goal Collaborative Update
The Kindergarten Readiness Action Team publishes report
The Kindergarten Readiness Action Team published its first annual Early Childhood Education Report for Wabash County with reports to follow for the region’s other ten counties. The reports provide a baseline set of county-level indicators, such as the percentage of children enrolled in high-quality early learning programs, to measure future progress and a menu of proven strategies from which to choose. The purpose of the reports is to give local county leaders the research, statistics and investment case required to help them generate more support, particularly from local employers, for increased quality early childhood education in each county.

High School Action Team's FAFSA program
The High School Action Team will run the second year of its FAFSA project beginning in early 2016. The team will host four FAFSA completion events from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on February 16 and 23 and March 1 and 8 at the Fort Wayne Community Schools’ Career Academy at Anthis, 1200 Barr St., Fort Wayne. The project has been so successful in the past, it’s expanding to DeKalb County. The DeKalb County Career Success Coalition is partnering with the Big Goal Collaborative to offer FAFSA completion support events throughout DeKalb County with dates to be announced soon. Eventually, the team hopes to have support efforts operating in all 11 counties in Northeast Indiana. To learn more about the program, contact Ryan Twiss.
