The RESC Alliance is committed to sustaining and supporting the value of teacher induction that is the essence of the TEAM process. Due to the fiscal reductions within the recently approved state budget, the CSDE communicated changes in funding for the TEAM program and the subsequent elimination of certain requirements.
Although all of the details have not been fully clarified and are still evolving, EASTCONN and the RESC Alliance are creating a Collaborative to support and continue the current Beginning Teacher/Mentorship framework that you know as TEAM. By participating, Licensed Educational Agencies can preserve their current professional development investment and beginning teacher process.
On December 11, 2017, EASTCONN met with TEAM representatives from districts across the region to discuss details related to the Collaborative. Listed below are the documents distributed at that meeting with information about the Collaborative.
We will continue to update this webpage as new information becomes available. Please contact Scott Nierendorf, Director of Teaching and Learning, at 860-455-1621 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
