WPS to Establish Reimagining Education Think Tank

Since March of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged school systems around the world. The pace has been frenetic as educational organizations have had to implement successful remote learning platforms essentially overnight, plan how to reopen schools amid changing epidemiological circumstances and support students academically and emotionally. Waterbury Public Schools is committed to the time and effort necessary to reflect, redesign and reimagine our education system to best meet the needs of our students. With that in mind, we are engaging our school staff, community partners and city officials to reimagine education in Waterbury with the creation of a think tank.
