November 28, 2018. The Logan Economic Alliance for Development is the sponsoring agency for this program. Logan County was recertified by the state in August 2018 as a Work Ready Community in Progress. Logan County was originally admitted into the program in 2013.
There are five basic criteria for measuring a county’s progress toward full certification as a Work Ready Community. The criteria along with the Logan County status for each follow:
Some College actual 42% goal 43% or more
Assoc degree or higher actual 21% goal 22% or more
No High School degree actual 17% goal 15% or less
Internet accessibility actual 80% goal 60% or more
High School grad rate actual 93% goal 90% or more
Logan County is very close to attaining full certification. The new Logan Career and Technical Center on the Logan High School Campus places additional emphasis on education and work skill training. We are optimistic that full certification will be reached by the deadline in 2021.
