Idaho Workforce Development Council Meeting Set for July 13 in Twin Falls
Several presentations are on the agenda for the quarterly Workforce Development Council meeting Thursday, July 13. The meeting takes place from 9 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. at the College of Southern Idaho’s Herrett Center, 315 Falls Ave., Twin Falls.
Members of the Governor’s Workforce Development Task Force will present recommendations from their final report. The task force, established in January, was charged with finding ways to improve Idaho’s funding and delivery of training to meet growing employer demand for skilled workers. The group recently wrapped up its final report.
Representatives from the Idaho Diversity Network - formerly known as the STEM Higher Education Network – also will present to the council, and Sherri Ybarra, Idaho superintendent of public instruction, will report on the Every Student Succeeds Act.
The meeting agenda can be found on Labor’s website.
Council members, appointed by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter, represent businesses, workers, education, state and local government and community based organizations. The council’s mission is to advise the governor and the State Board of Education on strategies designed to yield high quality workforce innovation and opportunity services for Idaho’s businesses, job seekers and students.
