Forum on the Superintendent’s 100 Day Plan this Thursday
This Thursday, December 10 from 5-7 PM, all BTU members are invited to give feedback on two key elements of Superintendent Chang’s 100 Day Plan: expansion of AWC to all students who wish to enroll, and ensuring that all high schools offer access to a Mass Core Curriculum. We know that these issues are the subject of debate (the BTU holds no official position on either), but we welcome the opportunity for educators to share a range of opinions and experiences. Come and share your thoughts about these two important initiatives. Join us this Thursday from 5-7 PM at the BTU. This meeting is open to all, but please RSVP for planning purposes.
