This week, Superior Mayor Mila Besich joined mayors from Miami and Kearny along with school superintendents from the Copper Corridor region at the Helios Education Foundation: Decision Theatre in Phoenix. We were able to see and interact with data regarding our individual school districts as well as our region as a whole. This collaboration has been coordinated by Resolution Copper through their contract with Arizona Strategies to help improve education outcomes in the region.
One of the conference rooms at the Helios Education Foundation is actually named for the Copper Corridor.
There are many simple things we can do to help our students attain higher education and job training. Most importantly, what was recognized is that both municipal and education leaders are working together.
Onward and upward, there’s much work to be done!
