Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Mike Pence, joined by local education leaders and industry partners, today unveiled a map of the eleven regions for the Indiana Works Councils and provided an update on their progress.

“All honest work is honorable work, and Indiana’s schools should work just as well for our kids who want to get a job as they do for our kids who want to get a college degree,” said Governor Pence. “To address this need, we are in the process of forming eleven regional Indiana Works Councils and are pleased with the number of industry partners who have stepped forward to lend insight to this critical effort. With the guidance of this private industry-led initiative, we will make Indiana a national leader in career and technical education workforce readiness for all Hoosier students.” 

The Indiana Works Councils were created with the passage of SEA 465, which the Governor signed into law on April 15, 2013. The legislation specifies the Council will bring educators and employers together to evaluate and develop career and technical education that meets the demands of employers in each region. Each Council is responsible for preparing and submitting a comprehensive evaluation of the available career, technical and vocational education opportunities for high school students in its region to the Governor and the education roundtable by November 1, 2013.
