Event description

Description

Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education and the Schenectady City School District for a convening on how increasing the high school graduation rate for the local area and for New York State can create jobs, increase consumer spending, and boost the local and state economies. Join business leaders, educators, community members, education advocates, and others for a vigorous conversation on this “graduation effect.”

The keynote address will feature Major General Mike Hall (Ret.), US Air Force; General Hall is the President and CEO of the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center, a defunct aviation museum that has been turned into a dynamic, aerospace-themed, NASA-oriented STEM academy.

The event will provide new data linking improved educational outcomes to economic gains and showcase new ideas for ensuring that young people graduate from high school ready for a variety of post-secondary options.

The day will start at 8:00 am with registration and breakfast, the program will commence at 9:00 am, lunch will be served, and the event will finish at 2:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
