Workshop: The Future of Public Education in the Connecticut Valley

On Saturday, October 27th, MASC’s Division V, in collaboration with the MASC Minority Caucus and Urban Division 9, will host its Fall Meeting starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Collaborative for Educational Services, 97 Hawley Street, Northampton, MA 01060. Light breakfast and lunch will be served, but attendees are asked to register ahead of time.

Please Note: If the Collaborative for Educational Services parking lot is full, please use the lot next door where the Shoe-Fix cobbler is located.

The agenda will consist of:

  • A presentation of the Resolutions that will be debated at the 2018 MASC Delegate Assembly in Hyannis in November, and
  • A special second portion entitled The Future of Public Education in the Connecticut Valley. This interactive facilitated discussion will explore the status of school districts, options and ideas for restructuring or innovation to meet emerging needs, and the problems inherent in charter school expansion. We will also explore how best to mobilize public school stakeholders to create powerful voices to ensure that our communities, parents, students, and teachers define our future.

The division meeting will be open to school committee members and their guests. Members should feel free to invite others from their districts to engage in the discussion.

A copy of the resolutions will be included/attached to the meeting notice and electronic distributions.
