Forum On Best Practices And Turn Around

February 23, 2017

As the House chair of the Education Committee, Representative Fleischmann suggested holding the Best Practices for District Turn-Around forum at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 28, in Room 2E of the Legislative Office Building.

District leaders who have helped Bloomfield, Bristol, New London and Norwalk schools achieve great turn-around results will discuss the following issues with the Education Committee:

  • Governance – how the board of education, central office and schools have worked together and carried out their roles effectively
  • Data and curriculum – how districts have used data teams to inform instruction and curriculum
  • School leadership – how districts have developed, recruited and retained great school leaders
  • Sustainability and succession – how the districts have ensured that there are good people ready to fill key vacancies – in school and district leadership positions – so that success is sustained
