Governor Kasich appointed Dennis Franks to the board on Monday.
Gov. John R. Kasich announced the members of the Governor’s Executive Workforce Board, Monday, taking another step to reform Ohio’s broken workforce development system.
One of the appointed is Dennis Franks, superintendent of Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center.
"I'm quite humbled by the opportunity to serve on this Governor's Executive Workforce Board in this capacity, representing all of career-tech education, as well as southcentral and southeast Ohio," said Franks.
In February 2012, Gov. Kasich created the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation and strengthened the role of the Executive Workforce Board via Executive Order 2012-02K. The Board will advise the Governor and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation on the development, implementation, and continuous improvement of Ohio’s entire workforce system, including recommendations on how best to streamline the 77 existing workforce programs currently scattered across 13 state agencies.
The majority of the Board directly represents private-industry business, but also included on the Board are representatives from the Ohio General Assembly, local government, a state agency, labor, and higher education.
