Ford NGL Designation

January 29, 2013, the Polk Association of Chamber Executives (PACE) in conjunction with Polk County's local Chambers of Commerce held a county-wide event at Legoland Florida. There the Polk County School District announced its partnership with Ford and was designated a Ford Next Generation Learning Community.

Hundreds of community members were on hand to learn how Ford NGL and Polk Academies are working together to build a new, exciting educational model for Polk County.

What is a Ford NGL Community?

Ford PAS: Next Generation Learning mobilizes educators, employers, and community leaders to create a new generation of young people who will graduate from high school both college- and career-ready—an emerging workforce prepared to compete successfully in the 21st century economy.

Students are at the center of everything we do. The changes we support in schools and their communities will help achieve the larger goal that all young adults will graduate from high school equipped with the essential knowledge and skills needed for success in post secondary learning and future careers, and for active citizenship. Our commitment is to prepare the future scientists, inventors, public servants, and entrepreneurs who will apply their passions and expertise to improving the world for their generation and those to come.

To achieve this goal requires the combination of the three strands that comprise the Ford PAS: Next Generation Learning initiatives: Transforming Teaching and Learning, Redesigning High Schools, and Sustaining Change through Business and Civic Leadership.
