Cocke County Partnership/Cocke County Cradle to Career Coalition
Community OrganizationsChild & Family Advocate
The Cocke County Rural Accelerator Initiative was launched in May 2019, with the mission of accelerating progress toward cradle-to-career outcomes through proactive, collaborative, engagement of all community stakeholders.
Outcomes of the work are that 1) all children will enter kindergarten ready to learn, 2) all children will exit third
grade reading on grade level, and 3) all students will graduate from high school as ready graduates.
In December 2020, the Rural Accelerator Initiative transitioned to a more permanent and sustainable name of Cocke County Cradle to Career Coalition or C5.
