Nominations Open for School Governance Councils

 

Are you interested in becoming involved in supporting student achievement in Windham Public Schools?

During the month of September nominations are open for parents, teachers and community members to be elected to Windham Public Schools' School Governance Councils.

 

The state education reform law (Public Act 10-111) passed by the legislature in 2010 and signed by the Governor includes provisions for School Governance Councils.

 

Purpose: School Governance Councils (SGC) provides an unprecedented opportunity for stakeholders in Connecticut schools to craft a productive collaboration to support student success. The intent of councils is to enable parents, school staff, students (where appropriate), and community leaders to work together to improve student achievement in the state’s lowest performing schools.

 

Membership: School Governance Councils are intended to represent the diverse interests of the families and staff that make up the school community.  To that end, every effort must be made to engage broad participation in the council election process.  An SGC shall include parents or guardians, teachers, community members, principal, and students (at high school SGCs only.)

 

Please consider being nominated, or nominate someone who you think would serve our students well!

 

La ley de la Reforma Educativa del Estado (Ley Pública 10-111)  aprobada por la legislatura y firmada por el Gobernador incluye disposiciones para los Consejos Directivos Escolares en la Sección 21(g).

 

Objetivo de los Consejos: Los Consejos Directivos Escolares (CGE, conocido como School Governance Council /SGC en inglés) proporcionan una oportunidad sin precedentes a las partes interesadas en las escuelas de Connecticut para lograr una colaboración productiva en apoyo del éxito estudiantil. La intención de los consejos es permitirles a los padres, al personal escolar, a los estudiantes (si aplica), y a los líderes de la comunidad a trabajar unidos para mejorar el desempeño del estudiante en las escuelas que presentan los índices más bajos de desempeño del estado.

                                                                                                                                                                            

Miembros del Consejo: Los Consejos Directivos Escolares están destinados a representar la diversidad de intereses de las familias y del personal que componen la comunidad escolar. Con ese fin, debe hacerse todo esfuerzo por asegurar una amplia participación en el proceso de elección del consejo. Un CGE puede incluir padres o encargados, maestros, miembros de la comunidad, director, y estudiantes (solamente en los CGE de la escuela superior).
