CP State Executive Director Mike Alvaro tapped for SED Reopening Schools Regional Task Force

CP State Executive Director Mike Alvaro has been invited to be on the New York State Education Department’s Reopening Schools Regional Task Force to participate in the Special Education break out session.

The first phase of the Task Force includes four virtual Regional Task Force meetings  with nine break-out sessions: Health and Safety; Transportation, Facilities, and Nutrition; Teaching and Learning; Digital Equity and Access; Budget and Fiscal; Social-Emotional Needs; Bilingual Education/Multilingual Learners/Bilingual Learners; Staffing/Human Resources; and Special Education.

In the coming days, members of the CP State Education Committee will receive a Zoom invitation and detailed agenda for the meetings.

In the second phase, “the Board of Regents and the Department will review and consider the input received at the four Regional Task Force meetings and elsewhere, and use that input to make policy and regulatory changes to help guide schools and school districts in the safe reopening of their schools.”
