ACT TO APPROVE RESOLUTION 14-02, ADOPTING A COUNTYWIDE VISION FOR OUR FUTURE, AND RESOLUTION 14-03, CRADLE TO CAREER ROADMAP (Mrs. Gonzales)

Dr. Gary Thomas has requested that VESD join the county and many other municipalities in supporting the success of every child from cradle to career.

In Fall 2010, the County of San Bernardino and San Bernardino Associated Governments initiated an effort to engage the county’s residents, businesses, non-profits, and other governmental agencies in the creation of a Countywide Vision for the future. This set in motion an outreach to constituent groups to build a network of communities to improve each essential element of our society: jobs/economy, education, housing, public safety, infrastructure, quality of life, environment, wellness, and image.

On May 2, 2012, the County Board of Supervisors and San Bernardino Associated Governments Board of Directors adopted two initial regional goals supporting the cradle-to-career success of every child and establishing the county as a model of business friendliness. The Education Element Group developed a "Cradle to Career Roadmap" in support of that goal.

The recommended action is to approve and adopt Resolution 14-02 in support of the Countywide Vision, and Resolution 14-03 in support of the Cradle to Career Roadmap, as presented.
