Reiche Teacher Led Model Goes to Augusta!
From Matt Moonen <<<07/22/13 3:28 PM >>>
I'm sure you've heard by now, but just in case you hadn't, I wanted to let you know that the bill inspired by your hard work and success at Reiche, LD 1106 - "An Act To Develop a Grant Program To Establish a Teacher-led School Model," became law in the closing days of the legislative session. It was passed unanimously by the Education committee and in the House and Senate!
Now other schools around the state will be able to apply for grant funding from the Department of Education to help them develop and implement a teacher-led model. I'm so excited and proud that there was widespread recognition of the work you all have done and are continuing to do, as well as the potential for replicating this model elsewhere!
I have attached the picture of our group in the House chamber from the day of the public hearing.
Please don't ever hesitate to get in touch if there's anything I can do to be of help to you all. Happy summer!
