Staunton, Augusta County, Waynesboro: 10-Year Career and Technical Strategic Plan

This plan was set in motion by area employers who frequently, consistently, and repeatedly reported to economic developers that they are unable to fill critical jobs with the available workforce. The employers linked their inability to staff vacancies to the career and technical education programs offered in the region. While additional factors play into shortages of a skilled workforce, the economic developers of Staunton, Augusta, and Waynesboro determined there was merit in evaluating the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities of career and technical education in the three jurisdictions and what could be done, over time, to improve programs for the benefit of students, graduates, employers, and the region’s economy.
