We welcome Dan Mella, assistant principal of Plymouth High School as he provides us an update on Governor Walker's Council on Workforce Investment (CWI). CWI advises Governor Walker and the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) on the allocation of federal workforce development funding. The Council approves the annual Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act plan required of all states in coordination with Wisconsin's 11 independent workforce development boards. CWI also aids Wisconsin employers in finding the workers they need and provide resources to enable workers to access training for in-demand careers with the ultimate goal of moving Wisconsin's economy forward.
Also joining the discussion will be Kevin Bruggink, Superintendent of the Oostburg School District to discuss Connecting School Finance with Business Development. After teaching high school biology for 17 years, Kevin served as principal at Oostburg Elementary School before serving as Superintendent of the Oostburg School District for the past six years.
