Attention Transition Coordinators and Transition Points of Contact

The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), in partnership with the RESC Alliance, is conducting an outreach to middle and high school students. We want to hear the voices of these students to hear, first hand, how they are learning through the pandemic, and what Connecticut Schools can do to make them feel even more connected, energized, and enthusiastic about learning this year. To gather this information, the CSDE and the RESC Alliance will be using the ThoughtExchange platform.

We need your assistance for gathering this important information. We ask that you review the memorandum from Deputy Commissioner Desi Nesmith at ThoughtExchangeMemoDec2020 and distribute the information as requested. A sample email to students along with a link to the ThoughtExchange platform for students is on the second page of that memorandum. Please encourage the students themselves, rather than parents whenever possible, to participate.

Please help the CSDE spread the word and ensure that student voice is heard during this pandemic. We have 1300 responses thus far!!

Thank you!
