The ELC survey is here
The Education Leadership Council (ELC) is a nonpartisan, multi-stakeholder council, created through executive order by Governor John Hickenlooper. The ELC and the many leaders involved with this effort are looking at the state of Colorado’s education system, asking the hard questions, and working passionately to create a level playing field for every student.
They are developing a unified, nonpartisan blueprint for our state’s education system, from early childhood through the workforce. They’re working together to help every student have the opportunity and tools for success, fuel our state’s growing workforce, and become a national and global leader in education. To do that, they need your insight.
Your input will feed directly into the work of the ELC and help make Colorado the State of Education. Your responses will be completely anonymous. Check out their website through the summer and fall to watch their progress and stay engaged.
Don't forget to wear #RedForPublicEd EVERY TUESDAY!
The Colorado Education Network is collecting “Promise of Colorado” stories of K-12 school students. CEA members are encouraged to submit pictures of their own child (not of their students) with a quote on why the child is the promise of the state’s future. The Network is using this initiative to start community conversations on increased school funding. Click HERE to find out how to submit your child’s picture and quote to advance this worthy project.
