Event Description

The community is invited to come on out on July 20th for the Superintendent Finalists Community Forum! Meet the candidates, submit a question and hear their vision for New Haven schools!


On Saturday, July 20, we are hosting an open community forum with the superintendent finalists from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gateway Community College in downtown New Haven. The finalists will be given an opportunity to present their visions for our school district, followed by a question and answer session driven by the community and moderated by a consultant from PROACT Search, the firm hired by the BOE to conduct the search. The board is currently in the process of interviewing semi-finalists and will select finalists next week.


Questions may be submitted online in advance of the event and will be asked of all of the candidates. Links to the online form for submitting questions are posted at There will also be a process for submitting questions at the event.


Throughout this entire process, input from our parents, staff and community members has been one of our top priorities. PROACT Search created the job profile from the input of more than 500 parents, teachers, administrators, students, and community stakeholders. Because you’ve had a direct impact on the criteria used to select these finalists, we want your voices to be heard during the selection process. This event is an opportunity for you to get to know the finalists, ask questions regarding the issues that matter most to you, and directly shape the future of our district. As those working directly with our children, we look to you to contribute valuably to the selection of the candidate who will continue to move our district forward.


The event is free and open to all. Lunch is also provided. For more details, including parking validation, public transit options, and free childcare registration, please visit the website or see the attached flyers. Feel free to spread the word through your networks!

This Year, Back-to-School Is Not What It Used to Be

This fall, all schools are struggling to devise ways to safely educate students in the midst of the pandemic. The charter schools whose facilities LISC has helped fund and guide are no different. Yvonne Nolan, who directs LISC’s charter schools financing work, checks in with some of our partner schools, who are taking cues from their communities to forge a new kind of education, and points out the ways CDFIs can help with this difficult process.

There’s No Time to Wait to End the Legacy of Redlining

In a powerful, truth-telling op-ed, LISC San Diego executive director Ricardo Flores shows how his city must take intentional action to throw off the Jim Crow-era legacy of redlining that still prevents economic mobility for many San Diegans. That local example, and Flores’ arguments, are applicable to cities and towns all across the country. It’s imperative and high time that all municipalities heed the message.
