Emphasis on Education
THE EDUCATION CONTINUUM ON THE LOWER EASTERN SHORE
The LESMD Region boasts a strong education continuum that includes workforce development and training. Three career & technical high schools are buttressed by a well-supported and growing community college, as well as two four-year institutions within the University System of Maryland.
A developing network of apprenticeship and other programs, in close coordination with the private sector, has further defined an increasingly comprehensive approach to regional workforce development. Over the years this has encouraged a closer look at the specific Economic Engines of agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, and tourism/conventions within the LESMD Region, as well as any identifiable segment clusters.
