On October 5th and 6th, state leaders from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont learned with and from each other and from consultants/presenters to advance their plans to implement strategies to reduce gaps in the equitable access to effective educators.
State leaders participated in several sessions focused on topics identified by them as priorities including recruiting and retaining educators in rural settings, leadership and workplace conditions, and communications. In addition, participants were provided with an array of materials that they could use to enhance their implementation efforts. State leaders had scheduled consultations with staff and consultants from the five organizations supporting this meeting.
The meeting was the first in a series of technical assistance services that will be provided to states in the Northeast by the following collaborating organizations:
- The Center for Great Teachers and Leaders
- The Council of Chief State School Officers
- The National Center for Systemic Improvement
- The Northeast Comprehensive Center
