The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that the local workforce investment board submit a strategic local workforce plan that reflects the vision, strategy, and goals of the State Strategic Workforce Development Plan. The WDB plan is a comprehensive document that describes the WDB vision for engaging key partners to effectively meet the rapidly changing needs of businesses and job seekers in a highly competitive and global economy.
The Strategic Local Workforce Development Five-Year Plan was approved in draft form by the California Workforce Investment Board on October 1, 2013 and the final Plan was approved by the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors on March 18, 2014. On February 13, 2014 the California Workforce Investment Board designated the WDB as a "High-Performing Board" based on past performance and the initiatives addressed the Plan.
