Connecticut Magnets: Leading the Nation

A review of the most outstanding accomplishments of our magnets – how they are closing the achievement gap, winning state and national awards for excellence, and providing thousands of children with the quality, integrated education they deserve. What will we need to do to support these schools in the next few years?

Featuring: William Magnotta, President, Magnet Schools of America (Connecticut State Department of Education)

Tim Sullivan, Classical Magnet School 2010 Principal of the Year, Connecticut School Association

With a new governor and increasing budget crisis, 2011 will be a pivotal year for our programs. Lawmakers will need to hear from parents and supporters to continue support for interdistrict magnets and to make sure local schools have the support they need to make Project Choice accessible to more children.

Please join magnet school principals and parent and community leaders to help us set the agenda for next year. Refreshments will be provided.
