NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Fundraising for Hurricane Relief

We will be raising funds as a district in support of hurricane relief efforts. Students, parents and staff can purchase a yellow wrist band for $1.00 (but larger donations may also be accepted) and then they can wear the wristbands to show their support of all the victims. Funds will be donated to one of three organizations: JJ Watts Foundation, Red Cross or Unicef. Each person can choose to which foundation he/she would like the money be directed. The campaign will begin as soon as the bracelets arrive. Parent Liaisons will spearhead the drive in all schools. They will collect all monies and then deliver them to the office of Family and Community Engagement, 236 Grand Street, Room 104 by 1:30 on that final day. 

Board Commissioners Certified

Congratulations go out to President Liz Brown, and Commissioners Ann Sweeney and Jason Van Stone, upon receiving CABE’s Certified Board of Education Member designation. To achieve this designation, Board members are required to earn a total of twenty credits in the areas of Board Relations, Policy, Curriculum, School Finance, School Law, Labor Relations, and Board Operations. This represents knowledge, skills and ability which can then be used here in Waterbury to help advance school and district improvements and policy. According to CABE, very few Board members earn this designation. 

 

Parent Notification-Parent Right To Know

The district will notify the parents of each student attending any Title I school through our website that the parent may request and the district will provide (in a  timely manner) information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teacher, including, at a minimum, the following:

- is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and 

- is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.  

Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so, their qualification. ESSA qualification of teachers and paraprofessional is attached.

 
Harlem Globetrotters Perform

The Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Center sponsored a fun evening for families on Wednesday evening, September 6th, with two of the Harlem Globetrotters, “Showboat” Jackson and “Blenda” Rodriguez, who not only engaged the audience with their tricks on the court but also spoke to students about staying safe and being kind to each other. The pair enlisted student and parent volunteers to come down on the court for some up-close demonstrations.
