Latest Developments From The Connecticut General Assembly


The General Assembly’s Education Committee is conducting a public hearing on March 3, 2014.  The Committee will consider testimony on bills that, among other things: 1) require school districts to adopt policies or enter into memoranda of understanding with law enforcement agencies concerning the use of law enforcement personnel as school resource officers, 2) require school districts to address issues relating to “chronic absenteeism” above and beyond mere truancy, 3) implement the Governor’s budgetary recommendations (particularly to the extent necessary to implement the latest Sheff settlement and expand early childhood education), and 4) include social media use education in the prescribed courses of study in public school curriculum.
