We are one of the action networks within the The Learning Network!
We were honored to be invited to lead a network by the The Learning Network of Greater Kalamazoo and changed our name to CACAN or College and Career Action Network. All of the work that we have done to get more students to and through college under KACAN remains the same. The name was changed to match the other action networks within the Learning Network. Action networks are groups of individuals, parents, students and practitioners working together to use data and a continuous improvement process to identify and implement practices that impact a community-level outcome.
