“IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD" Economic Independence for our Students! Economic Success for Our Community! Jacqui Clay, Buena High School
The meaning of the proverb “it takes a village to raise a child” is simply that. It takes more than one person to teach a child the ways of life.

COMMUNICATE – WHAT? What do we communicate to our community? Discuss with your group and list what should be communicated to your community Student graduation rate, how they can assist State of CTE program AZ CTE Plan How it relates to the Community/City Strategic Plan
COMMUNICATE Communicate Purpose and Priorities Clearly and Consistently Ensure that all stakeholders understand the purpose, priorities and goals of our community *Cultures Built to Last, Dufour & Fullan
Gallup has found out that kids drop out of school when… They lose hope to graduate! *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
The reason they lose hope of graduating is because they don’t feel excited about what’s next in their lives Having no vision or excitement for the future is the cause of dropping out of school *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
Students must be rescued at or before the moment they lose hope in the future If they aren’t caught in time, they don’t just drop out of school, they drop out of life! *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
This can be fixed if America aims its strategies at the cause versus the effects of hopelessness Our strategy must first and foremost, be built on hope rather than on grades and attendance, because loss of hope precedes bad grades and truancy *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
Gallup scientists have learned that hope predicts academic success and graduation better than grades or test scores do Increasing hope isn’t easy, but it can be done….
And it has to be done locally, on a citywide basis rather than on a national one… Only a local focus has a chance
And the prize for a student is not graduating but rather a job… Even better, an exciting Career!
THE STORY OF AJ AJ and Mr. Clifton did not have a “Grades” relationship, they had a “Job” relationship If he stays on his current path, there is no question that AJ will make a significant contribution to the American workforce *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
Until all of our leaders in our cities say, “I would rather die than lose my city’s future” Which will happen if it’s not fixed… AND they themselves take 100% responsibility for the solution… This problem will remain America’s Achilles’ heel *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
Student graduation is one of the most definitive predictor of a city’s future innovation, entrepreneurship and subsequent job and GDP growth If our cities don’t fix graduation rates and youth economic energy now, jobs may move to other countries *The Coming Job Wars, Clifton, J. 2011
The solution to this problem is about taking our whole city to war against the dropout problem, one student at a time…
