An Education Advisory Board has been established to identify current and future workforce and community education needs. The goals of the Board include:

  1. Increase the number of high school students who attend concurrent enrollment courses, especially in the Associate of Arts program and career/technical fields of advanced manufacturing and healthcare. 
  2. Become a Skilled Iowa Community.
  3. Re-establish English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes in New Hampton.
  4. Enhance adult training program opportunities.
