I attended, along with several of our region's board of education members, the CABE/CAPSS Convention on November 14-15 in Groton. This was a wonder opportunity to network with colleagues from other districts. There were over thirty educational sessions related to issues board members and superintendents deal with routinely. Of note , was a general session speaker, Bill Daggett, who talked about both challenges and opportunities today to build the capacity of educational leaders. Another interesting general session was a presentation from Rick Mastracchio, an astronaut, with much to share about the important role of public education as it greatly impacted his life.
Our regional grade level teacher teams have been meeting this fall to continue work on curriculum and revisions to meet Connecticut State Standards. Principals have completed their goals for the year ahead. They will continue to work with their teachers to develop professional learning opportunities.
