Region 1 board anxious for the public to understand what they do

 FALLS VILLAGE – Region 1 board member John Sanders pushed his colleagues to set up a communications plan to better interact with the public.

The Cornwall representative asked that the topic be placed on the agenda of Monday’s meeting as a result of discussions during the board’s participation in the Lighthouse Project, a joint effort between the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education and the state Department of Education to see how boards can affect student achievement.
