Many Districts Represented at the RIASC Chair Meeting
It was great to see School committee chairs and their designees at RIASC's Chair meeting!
Attendees received a state budget briefing and heard a presentation on the Hassenfeld Institute from Gary Sasse. Executive Director Tim Duffy provided a legislative overview, with topics including a statewide teacher contract, the construction moratorium, budget shortfalls, and statewide efficiencies.
School committee chairs were then given the opportunity to discuss statewide education issues and concerns.
