The public hearing on Common Core and Teacher Evaluation is scheduled for Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 12:00 noon; it will take place in room 1E of the Legislative Office Building (LOB). The AGENDA includes:
HB5078, "AN ACT IMPOSING A MORATORIUM ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS."

Guidelines on testifying and providing testimony are attached; for directions to the LOB at 300 Capitol Avenue, please click here.
I hope to see many of you on Wednesday and ask you please share this with everyone you know who wishes to express their views on Common Core and Teacher Evaluation.
As stated in the guidelines, everyone who will be testifying must submit 35 copies in room 3100 of the LOB by 9:30 AM on March 12th. Sign-up for the hearing will begin at 8:30 AM in the First Floor Atrium of the LOB, will be by Lottery, and will conclude at 9:30 AM. PLEASE DO NOT LET THESE LIMITS IMPOSED BY THE CHAIRS OF EDUCATION DISCOURAGE YOU FROM SIGNING UP. Let your presence show and your voice proclaim to the Chairs these issues are of serious concern and importance to you and the children of Stamford.
Again, as stated in the guidelines, an electronic copy of everyone's testimony is due by 2:00 PM on March 11th and please include the word "Testimony" in the subject line; this applies to both those who will attend and anyone unable to attend who wishes to submit testimony. Please submit your electronic copy to EDTestimony@cga.ct.gov.
See you on the 12th!
I can't figure out how to upload the Word document he attached for you to see, so I changed it into a jpg. That means that the links on the image won't work. I created links underneath it though, in case you'd like to follow them.
Testimony will be available here. And Mike's website is here.
