Legislative Agenda - 2011
The RESCs – locally governed by representatives from member boards of education – will advocate for the following issues during the 2011 session of the General Assembly:
Regional Partnerships to Improve Fiscal Efficiency
The RESC Alliance seeks to encourage and promote regional collaboration among boards of education and local governments to realize cost savings to the state and municipalities in difficult economic times.
Regional Cooperation to Close the Achievement Gap
The RESC Alliance supports the state incentive for voluntary partnerships on a regional basis to close the achievement gap.
Support Existing Regional Infrastructure
Each of the RESCs, both individually and collaboratively, maintains a regional infrastructure to facilitate high quality programs and services to school districts at a lower cost. The RESC Alliance urges the General Assembly to maintain the existing support for regional cooperation.
Early Childhood Initiative
Connecticut RESCs have been leaders in quality early childhood initiatives around the state. We are uniquely positioned to support the implementation of a wide range of educational early childhood programs and services.
