TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Leon County Schools and Tallahassee Community College are focused on helping kids enter the workforce in Leon County.

Monday, they came together to sign a Joint Partnership Resolution and a Memorandum of Understanding.

They're pledging to work together to improve their programs that help students enter the workforce and meet the needs of local employers.

"I think the most tangible benefits is the fact that students who come out of Lively matriculate to Tallahassee Community College as well as those who come out the Leon County k-12 system," said Jim Murdaugh, the president of Tallahassee Community College. "What's really important on behalf of students is that we have the agreements in place to make that work seamlessly."

The two institutions want to increase their workforce program offerings while making sure there's no overlap between programs.
