Education Equity & The American Rescue Plan
What does Education Equity look like for you, your family and your community?
With over $1.1 billion being sent to Connecticut schools from the federal government, our communities have an unprecedented opportunity to build back our schools better than ever!
The state of Connecticut is required to provide "meaningful consultation" with school communities, stakeholders and the public." Will you help us with this process?
We are interested in hearing how you would like these resources to be used in your community. Please visit https://bit.ly/ccagEEsurvey to take the survey.
