Relations between Area, State, Regional and National Associations and the Schools
Membership in recognized associations such as the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education will be maintained by the schools for several reasons, including:
1. the in-service education benefits to our staff and Board of Education which come from participation in meetings, conferences, clinics and conventions.
2. access to the communication media of such associations, such as newsletters, periodicals and advisory services.
3. representation in actions affecting education in general and our school district in particular.
The Superintendent of Schools is authorized to budget funds for membership and to pay the costs of adequate participation of Board of Education, administration and staff in the activities of such associations to achieve the purposes listed above.
