Region 12 Schools: A Comprehensive Approach to Education (A Virtual Program)

April 25 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

A Shepaug Libraries Program

Hosted by the Gunn Memorial Library

Region 12 Schools has been rapidly growing and changing. We are proud of the development of the Agriscience Academy at Shepaug, but that is not only change occurring in our schools. The hour-long conversation with the Superintendent of Region 12 Schools, Megan Bennett, will showcase the changes, successes, and evolution of the Region 12 School system. The community conversation will allow audience members to hear the vision of the Region 12 Schools, share their concerns, and express the community’s vision for our students and our schools.

Megan Bennett has supported students as a classroom teacher, curriculum coordinator, principal and now superintendent. Her work has allowed her the opportunities to serve communities in urban, suburban and rural areas. Her personalized approach to working with students and families has been highlighted in articles, blogs and interviews.

Megan’s math curriculum experience included work in both the Connecticut and Massachusetts State Departments of Education. Her focus during her career has been to close the achievement gap in education; successfully meeting Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for Taunton Schools during her time in the math department. Megan presented at national and state level conferences including National Teachers of Mathematics (NTCM), ATOMIC, Common Core Implementation at Connecticut State Department of Education.  Additionally, Megan served on the Individual Education Plan (IEP) Advisory Council for the General Assembly. She now brings her efforts and love for teaching and learning to the staff and students in Region 12.

This virtual event is a John Millington Community Conversation Series sponsored by the Washington Democratic Town Committee.
