Do you have questions for the State Department of Education (SDE) about distance learning challenges, when school buildings will reopen or other issues related to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)? Join our live teachers tele-town hall for answers from Commissioner Miguel Cardona and members of his staff:
- WHEN: Wednesday, April 29 from 4:00PM to 5:00PM.
- WHERE: on your telephone or online via “GoToWebinar.”
- HOW: Click here to complete a reservation request (does not guarantee registration)
Jointly hosted between AFT Connecticut and the Connecticut Education Association (CEA), the town hall is open only to union members in good standing and limited to the first 3,000 to register. Be sure to submit your reservation request now — the deadline is Wednesday at 12:00PM.
If space is available and your membership can be verified before then, you will be sent an online registration link and further information via follow-up e-mail. To maximize time, questions are required in advance (verified members will have the opportunity to submit theirs when registering).
Because this is being organized on short notice, the audio and video for next Wednesday’s event will be available at our website to watch online soon after. We know you have many questions, so we hope this is an opportunity to get some answers — and perhaps some peace of mind — in this uncertain time.
More to come, and in solidarity,
