This report looks at a wide range of statistics on how well Pinellas County students are doing and how many are going on to earn a college degree or credential. On July 16, more than 60 community leaders will gather to look at all the data, share their insights and offer priorities for how to improve student success.
The Pinellas Education Foundation and Florida College Access Network produced the report with support from the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg and other community partners. The report builds on the work being done in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties by partners in the LEAP Tampa Bay College Access Network.
LEAP’s goal is to increase the number of working-age adults in our region who have a college degree or quality industry certification to 60 percent. (The current number is around 48 percent). Economic studies show that the region will need more well-trained adults to meet our workforce needs and build a stronger, more vital community.
