State Department of Education is holding a series of workshops around the state on Connecticut's new School Governance Council law.
The New Haven workshop will be held on Monday, November 29th at 6 pm at Cooperative Arts High School 177 College Street, New Haven (enter at corner of Crown and College). (New Haven's workshop is being hosted by CT BLack Alliance for Educational Options.)
This new state requirement is the result of a negotiated law passed earlier this year in which parents played an unprecedented role. (More information is available at the School Governance Council section of our website.)
The workshops will:
Review the School Governance Council requirements (Public Act 10-1110);
Explore the opportunities the legislation provides for families, schools, and communities to work together;
Review the role of School Governance Councils in school improvement efforts; and
Discuss timelines and requirements for schools that are required to start School Governance Councils.
These workshops are being conducted by the Connecticut State Department of Education, the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education, the State Education Resource Center (SERC), and The Connecticut Parent and Information Resource Center (CT PIRC).
We expect other workshops to be scheduled elsewhere around Connecticut. If you would like to hear about these, please sign up for CT Parent Power's School Governance Council updates.
We look forward to working with you to help build strong School Governance Councils throughout Connecticut.
