Stark County P-16: Then and NowStark County P-16: Then and Now

On October 24, 2002, over 130 community leaders came together at the McKinley Grand Hotel in downtown Canton to consider the findings of a white paper called the Class of 2021.

That paper, authored by the Stark County P-16 Compact, took a hard and serious look at the county's education levels in relation to the state and nation, but it also went further. The Class of 2021 proposed a vision for the future that was centered on creating a seamless system of education, from preschool through college (P-16).

Leaders decided that day that in order to achieve that vision, two goals were paramount. These were to achieve a 100% high school graduation rate and to increase the number of students going on to college. In the ensuing years, members of the Stark County P-16 Compact have created and engaged a powerful network of networks to make both goals a reality. How has the community done?
