In 2015, The Pathways to Prosperity Network* conducted an asset mapping of Rutherford County that provided baseline data to enable the development of a strategic plan to support the identified high growth, high demand jobs that are projected through 2025. The asset map revealed that stakeholders in Rutherford County from across education, business, and government are working to build grades 7-14 career pathways, aligned with the Pathways Tennessee framework and strategic plan, that support young people in the county in attaining their educational and career goals. Key sectors for building pathways aligned with labor-market demand were also identified and include the following 5 STEM fields; advanced manufacturing, construction, health care, information technology and supply chain management.
