Building Blocks to Great Schools



GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (July 16, 2010) Goodyear Mayor Jim Cavanaugh and Council members understand the important contribution our schools make towards the city?s recognition as a place known for high quality of life standards, an educated workforce and a power in economic activity.


Great schools will preserve what we have today and our reputation will continue to attract new families and businesses to Goodyear, ensuring our long-term vitality.


This fact energized Mayor and Council to form a partnership with the City?s six schools districts and local colleges.  The effort was led by Councilmember Joanne Osborne and brought together district superintendents, principals, college officials and city staff.  The objective was to create an ongoing collaboration to develop policies and practices that enhance the quality of education and promote a richer community environment.


The first year of the partnership has proven successful in sharing resources and ideas to further educational excellence and assist with school safety and operations.
