For media: Chamber’s Quality Education Committee hosts “Skills for Success” collaboration launch event Tuesday

Monday, July 24, 2017

RELEASE 17-010

What: The Chamber’s Quality Education Committee, in collaboration with Community Action Partnership of North Alabama, Decatur City Schools, Hartselle City Schools, Morgan County Schools and the Decatur Public Library, announce the launch of “Skills for Success” – a resource to ensure parents and teachers can have conversations about what is expected of children in grades K-8. As students transfer between the three school systems, these literature resources will help the community understand consistent expectations across Morgan County for each child in their respective grades.

The end product – available in English and Spanish – will also assist parents and community members in understanding expectations of the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards. The Skills for Success team was composed of teachers and administrators from across the three school systems working together to create the resources in laymen’s terms, ensuring parents and teachers can have clear conversations about academic benchmarks.

Who: Patrick Patterson, director of secondary education for Morgan County Schools, and Chuck Ard, chair of the Chamber’s Quality Education Committee, will be available to discuss to project and the impact on our school communities. 

When: Tuesday, July 25, 2 p.m.

Where: Fite Building Company Board Room at the Chamber of Commerce – 515 6th Ave., Decatur

For Media: Please contact Grant Thompson to RSVP for the event.


The Chamber wishes to thank its Strategic Partners for their support.
