Education Council

Our Mission

The purpose of the Education Council (EC) is to serve as the voice of the residents of greater Estero to improve the quality of educational programs and facilities. The EC seeks opportunities, offers solutions, challenges threats, and communicates reliable and accurate information to ECCL leadership and residents to make informed decisions and encourage community engagement on education issues.

 

 

 

What we’re doing…

The Education Council’s Vision is to assure quality educational organizations and programs contribute to an improved quality of community life resulting in a recognition that the greater Estero area is recognized as a destination where people want to live, worship, conduct business and educate their children.
