Job training strategies to be available online.
MPR Inc. is preparing the site through a contract with the federal education and labor departments. MPR had originally planned to have the site up by now but received a three-month extension.
"We're in the final stages of finishing the web-based tool that will help communities understand how other teams and communities have done it," said Sharon Anderson, MPR associate director for K-12 school improvement.
The website will feature community colleges as a central part of partnerships, Anderson said. It will show Community-Based Job Training partnership participants explaining how they developed career pathways in high-growth industries.
"We'll try to have the voice of the participants and really focus on what they think they've learned" and provide resources and advice for consultants, Anderson said.
