Policy Committee

Launched in December 2022, the Success Network’s Policy Committee provides space for local practitioners and policy leaders to collaborate and learn from one another, elevates local practice to inform State policy, and supports local practitioners to take advantage of policy windows.

The Policy Committee is composed of a range of education, workforce, community-based organizations, advocacy groups, and State agency stakeholders spanning the P-20 pipeline. 

What do we explore with the Policy Committee?

The Policy Committee focuses on new and emerging education and career policy efforts, including (but not limited to) issues around:

  • College and Career Pathways
  • Work-Based Learning
  • Early College Credit
  • Transitional Instruction
  • Postsecondary Transitions

Additionally, committee members share about promising local practices from Leadership Communities around Illinois, engage with data, identify and advance emerging policy priorities, and identify opportunities to scale innovative policy in the field.

We are always open to new members! Join us by subscribing to the newsletter:
