The Eastford Board of Education has determined that it would be advantageous to obtain views from community stakeholders about elementary, middle and high school education. It was decided that the Eastford Board of Education should sponsor a Community Conversation, similar to the program that was held in 2009. The 2018 Community Conversation, which is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, October 30, will include discussion about designated high schools as well as future plans for Eastford Elementary School.
More specifically, the issues that will be discussed at the Community Conversation are:
Issue Number 1: Can Eastford continue to afford the PK-8 School?
Issue Number 2: Should Eastford designate another or different high school for tuition and transportation?
There will be one meeting for facilitators, held one week before the actual event. We have some facilitators signed up and if you are interested in joining the group, please contact Kymberli Gaylor in the Superintendent’s office at 860-974-1130.
This is an exciting opportunity to become involved in a vitally important community conversation!
