How to Partner with the Council
Business & Industry Partnerships
One of the Council's most important responsibilities is to serve its members through building the capacity of states and their leaders. This requires creative problem solving to address complex issues, and access to technical assistance and resources that may not be readily available. The Council's Business and Industry partners are a select group of institutions and organizations that engage in the work of the Council and participate in CCSSO's membership meetings. Through this interaction and exchange of ideas our partners gain a greater understanding of key issues facing state education leaders and our members benefit from exposure to new ideas, different perspectives, and innovative solutions.
The Council's mission is to assist chief state school officers and their organizations in achieving the vision of an American education system that enables all children to succeed in school, work, and life. This mission cannot be met without forging new collaborations. In today’s environment, success derives from working with and learning from diverse constituencies.
