We need your voice at this public feedback session. The Education Justice Coalition is going to pack the (virtual) room with people from Bennington to Burlington and beyond who will support these updates that have been in the works for the past three years. Your testimony will help provide greater support for all students, and particularly students with disabilities, students in poverty, LGBTQIA students, multilingual students, and students of color. Here’s a helpful guide to creating a strong State Board testimony.

Also if you can’t make it but want to give input you can write a letter to the State Board EQS Subcommittee using this letter template.
