3.E. CAVIAT's endorsement of the Flagstaff Commission on Excellence in Education Report 
Description:  This is a report created by Flagstaff and Coconino County partners.  Jac sat on and participated in this committee through June of this year.  I joined the committee in June and have helped frame and support the efforts reflected in this report.

The commission hopes to provide world class education for students in Flagstaff by 2020.  

One of their "bold goals" is to increase graduation rates and students being career and college ready...that's where we fit in!  CAVIAT, and the group realizes this, can be a major player in these efforts.

The commission has asked that each entity "sign off" on this report at our next meeting.  As the superintendent of CAVIAT, I would like to sign said document and commit to providing the commission with Premier CTE opportunities in years to come in the Flagstaff area thus helping them reach their goals.

I am asking the board to endorse the report and my participation in the continued efforts of this commission.
