San Bernardino County Community Cradle to Career RoadmapTop of Page

In January 2010, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors selected Mr. Greg Devereaux to help the Board lead San Bernardino County in a new direction, emphasizing fiscal responsibility and proactive solutions. Since then, Mr. Devereaux has worked with the Board and San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) to develop a vision for the entire county, seeking input from residents, employers, educators, community and faith‐based organizations, and elected leaders. The Countywide Vision Statement was adopted by the County Board and SANBAG on June 30, 2011. Mr. Devereaux then immediately worked with the Board and County officials to establish County government's role in the realization of the Vision. The new vision of San Bernardino County is:
  • We envision a complete county that capitalizes on the diversity of its people, its geography, and its economy to create a broad range of choices for its residents in how they live, work, and play
  • We envision a vibrant economy with a skilled workforce that attracts employers who seize the opportunities presented by the county's unique advantages and provide the jobs that create countywide prosperity
  • We envision a sustainable system of high‐quality education, community health, public safety, housing, retail, recreation, arts and culture, and infrastructure, in which development complements our natural resources and environment
  • We envision a model community which is governed in an open and ethical manner, where great ideas are replicated and brought to scale, and all sectors work collaboratively to reach shared goals
  • From our valleys, across our mountains, and into our deserts, we envision a county that is a destination for visitors and a home for anyone seeking a sense of community and the best life has to offer

There are ten element groups that have been identified to coordinate and collaborate to support the County's vision:
  1. Education
  2. Environment
  3. Housing
  4. Image
  5. Infrastructure
  6. Jobs/Economy
  7. Public Safety
  8. Quality of Life
  9. Water
  10. Wellness

The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) is leading the Education element group. In October 2013, the SBCSS Governing Board adopted the San Bernardino County Community Cradle to Career Roadmap as a Collective Impact approach to achieving the countywide vision. In February 2014, the CRY-ROP Governing Board adopted a resolution in support of the Cradle to Career Roadmap. The following is an image of the roadmap.
