•  Erie Together

    Erie's Public Schools are committed to graduating students ready for success in higher education or the workforce.

    The Erie Together project has set a goal of increasing the number of residents who are qualified for, and can find, suitable family-sustaining employment.

    One product of this effort, was the development of a Work Readiness Checklist outlining the personal qualities, social skills, communication abilities, team work skills, education and other characteristics of being ready for suitable family-sustaining employment. The checklist also outlines some common barriers to employment and provides a list of related community resources.
