I am the current chairperson for Partners for Progress education committee. This active committee is dedicated to improving education in St. Charles County believing that education is the foundation on which a community grows. An area's education level both directly and indirectly impacts all of the other PfP indicator areas including: economic achievement, health care accessibility and health care accessibility.
Superintendents of the public school districts in the county as well as principals from are private high schools and a representative of the St. Charles City County Library District also participate.
Key education measures include post-secondary education attainment, ACT scores, and Library Quality Index. In 2011 PfP is focused on supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), activities including robotics, developing school/business partnerships and ACT test scores in the county via the ACT Prep Test Program.
