The work of each Learning Link action team is to:

  • create evaluation tools for measuring progress;
  • collect specific baseline data against which to measure progress;
  • work together to ensure clear communication between and among the action teams, the steering committee and the community at large;
  • work to facilitate communication between and among the community’s sectors, organizations and entities; and
  • perform these duties while always objectively considering what is best for the overall vision of the community rather than the interests of any one segment of the community.
