Why are you here?
Being a member of the CREC Council affords you both opportunities as well as responsibilities towards CREC and your own district board. The CREC Council meets each month during the school year, usually on the third Wednesday of the month. As the representative from your school board, you represent your school district in the decisions the CREC Council makes each month.
But the meetings also include valuable opportunities to hear firsthand information from representatives from the state Department of Education, from educational lobbyists, and from special visitors vital to educational interests in Connecticut. Visitors have included people such as Commissioner Stefan Pryor and Representative Andy Fleischmann, co-chair of the legislature’s education committee.
As a CREC Council member, you also have the wonderful opportunity to share information with fellow board members from our region’s districts, which can give you a wider perspective on issues that affect your district.
