okay so Matt we're going to begin.broadcasting after the countdown five.four three two one.well welcome everyone I'm lieutenant.governor Susan Lysa woods and I am also.the chair of the interagency Council and.I hereby call to order this quarterly.meeting of the interagency Council for.attending the achievement gap or ending.the or or the opportunity gap we last.convened in February before we entered.into a state of emergency in response to.the Kovach 19 violence since then we.have seen how the virus.disproportionately impacts communities.of color we've also seen too many.examples of how policing against people.of color is not only excessive but can.also result in.recklessly so in the death of the very.people that officers of the law should.be protecting and serving and since then.there has been a rightfully a lot of.discussion about not only how to address.health disparities and police reform but.overall on the economic inequalities in.lack of access to equal justice that's.abilities in our state and our country.and which systemically disadvantaged.people of color and put their lives at.risk so all of this is to say that the.importance of this council is critically.plainly and abundantly clear in.acknowledging the achiever and.prioritizing our roles in closing it we.are addressing many of the issues at the.very center of the structural proposing.challenges and underserved communities.agencies represented so critical to.supporting the needs of our students in.school but also critical to supporting.families by addressing lack resources.and lack of opportunities so I want to.just stress to each of you how important.a role you play not through an education.but in the overall safety development.and advancement of our communities so.with that in mind I'd like us to go.around and introduce themselves to our.service knowledge all of the agencies.that are playing an important role in.this meaningful work.we're gonna

about its.review of the task force master plan and.progress that they may have made all.right all right I'm going to if you.would like to share your screen just.please let me know and we will.accommodate at this point I think I'll.take the screen sharing down so that we.can see each other as we have a.discussion and then I'm going to call on.Joe apartment of administrative services.first well good afternoon I have to can.you hear me okay we'll start off with.that okay Thank You Charlene get the.thumbs up so as a relative newcomer to.this group.I reviewed the the content of the master.plan and I don't have any particular.specific progress to report on that more.focused on the work that has been going.on in support of digital and remote.learning and specifically around issues.of equity of access that is work that's.happened over the course of the past few.years especially looking at getting.students connected to devices in the.internet and high quality content and so.I can leave it at that I think that fits.into a lot of.in the school and outside of the school.of concerns I do have a few slides to.share regarding the the work that has.happened since Cove ed related closures.and just to be clear would you like me.to share those slides now or will we.wait for those later this will come.later we're going to discuss a bit.master plan and we'll discuss cold at 19.afterwards okay excellent.well then I'll end my remarks for now it.does that make sense.lieutenant governor or did you want them.all no I think it's I think it's easiest.to go topic by topic okay thank you so.next I'm going to call on the Department.of Education slides there we do I'm.going to share those with me right now.good why are you setting those up I want.to just thank the lieutenant governor.for maintaining our schedule as.challenging as it is for all of us the.work of the addressing the achievement.and opportunity gaps continues you know.I was fortunate to be a part of that.team in 2010-2011 maybe that came.together to discuss the achievement.disparities in the state of Connecticut.by Raisins zip code and we're still.working really hard I'm fortunate not to.serve as Commissioner of Education and.the work is more important than ever.I mean Cova really exacerbated this so.the topics today are very timely and I.appreciate the commitment to keeping.this at the forefront of our.conversations as leaders in Connecticut.I do happen to have the actual report.here I keep it on my bookcase because.it's something that I want to make sure.guides everything that we do at the.agency so as you probably the report is.broken up into two parts instead I just.cool house and outside of the.schoolhouse and there are lists there of.things that you know we've been working.on even prior to me becoming the.Commissioner of Education.education has done good work to try to.address some of these areas you know.some of them that you see here are ones.that have gotten more attention you know.at the last meeting we talked about.chronic absenteeism and you saw the.Maine amazing work under the leadership.of Deputy Commissioner Charlie Russell.Tucker to work on that school climate.has been a huge focus you know kids are.not going to learn if they don't want to.be in school so we wanted to make sure.that we're looking at climate issues in.relation to achievement issues and.outcome issues you know when we make.schools workplaces where kids want to be.and they feel connected and they feel a.sense of relationship they're more.likely to learn and want to be there.every day all these are connected and.that's not to say that we forget about.the issues around making sure that our.students who are achieving are being.pushed to the highest extent that they.can be pushed so we are looking at not.only exclusionary data such as.suspensions expulsions by race by.socioeconomic status or by zip code but.we're also identifying how are we.pushing our kids forward how are we.challenging our learners to go to a.higher level based on race and zip code.you know are we pushing students to go.into advanced placement courses the way.we should be and we've taken some steps.in the last six months to put out.letters to families for students to say.hey we've been looking at your grades.and we notice you can you can go higher.have you taken AP courses are you.considering higher level courses we know.that student connections to those higher.more rigorous courses are good.predictors of college success so we're.taking advantage of making sure that.we're looking across the spectrum for.students now I'll get a little bit more.into that in a second I'll be brief in.my comments but I also want to share.that we recognize it's our.responsibility as an education.institution to be a part of the solution.when it comes to poverty hunger and food.insecurity probably say that the agency.has distributed over eight million meals.in the last three.and something that I'm extremely proud.of are you able to put this slide back.up I'm sorry about that I know it's okay.yeah so you know we're we're looking at.issues inside the schoolhouse and issues.outside of the schoolhouse family.engagement obviously is a critical piece.of schooling so we make sure that we.have structures in place where we're.promoting good family engagement we work.really closely with our partners at OVC.in early early education and then the.social-emotional health prevention is.something that is paramount to student.success we know this is exacerbated also.with the achievement I mean the Colgate.issue but a couple quick things that.we've done in the last several months is.we identified a Deputy Commissioner for.academics and the Deputy Commissioner.for education of wellness and supports.so that social-emotional piece rose to.the top to make sure that everything.that we do we're promoting a very.rigorous action plan on equity and.access which includes training and.having those difficult conversations.about race and what it means to look at.our data and look at the root causes of.what our data is telling us you know.we're knee-deep in trying to diversify.our teachers and our principals and our.leaders through minority teacher.recruitment efforts and as far as.curriculum I want to say that you know.for us not to have a stance there or not.to really move we're missing the point a.curriculum is such an important part of.of what the experience is for students.so we're really engaging and trying to.lift up quality curriculum practices so.that students have access to.high-quality rigorous materials that are.going to prepare them for college and.careers so we're excited about that work.and it really dovetails nicely with the.work of the achievement gap task force.that was established many years ago and.the interagency Council which will talk.a little bit more about later so that.those are her updates I'm Charlene.enough you wanted to jump in with.anything else you did a great job.Commissioner I'll leave it there thank.you.I'm going to call on the Department of.Housing and share this screen with her.so she can present there you go Shantay.I think you need to unmute your mic can.you hear me now so Connecticut has an.affordable housing shortage as we know.the Department of Housing we first.looked at how housing insecurity.exacerbates the achievement gap because.students who need the most help are.confined to the schools within the.greatest needs lowest tax base needs and.fewest resources and of course.Connecticut's communities and poverty.are concentrated and 30 out of the 163.municipalities these communities are.stress environments that the children at.risk with poor academic performance so.what that said the Department of Housing.is working with providers on mobility.program to provide opportunities in high.opportunity areas we are also working.with developers and the appellate EES to.provide affordable housing opportunities.throughout the state not just in the 30.highest concentration areas also.which is probably no surprise to the.members of this panel we are also met.with challenges that include zoning and.oftentimes additional seats and schools.is a hot-button issue so in respect to.the master plan the normative housing is.working on our plan to make sure that.towns and cities have access to quality.affordable housing and that we also.incentivize of comprehensive approach.and neighborhoods working with schools.and other stakeholders currently we have.engaged with the Regional Planning.Association to provide technical.assistance to talents that are.developing their housing plans currently.ngoh shares the vision and belief of the.task force that all children will live.in safe and stable housing in children.with families in economic stability.thank you any questions I think we can.move to the next one curry thank you and.so the next agency would be Department.of Public Health hi.I can speak briefly about the.school-based health center program since.that's my expertise.DPH currently supports 91 school-based.health center sites in 2018 80s across.Connecticut we serve students in.elementary middle and high schools we.provide physical mental health and some.dental services in the school where the.child is enrolled with regardless of.their ability to pay so being able to.treat as well at school reduces.absenteeism save money by keeping.children out of the emergency room and.supports families by allowing parents to.stay at work always health centers work.collaborate collaboratively with schools.parents in the community ensure students.are all ready and healthy to learn as.well thank you.the next will be Department of Children.and Families good morning again and this.is Michael Williams I will briefly share.some of the areas that we have made.progress in as it relates to support of.the plan and then toss it to Matt : Oh.superintendent to add a little bit more.detail academically what's been.happening with kids in foster care and.kids who are served in our in our.facilities first and foremost at the.beginning of last fiscal year the.department made the decision to comply.and move towards compliance with the.federal family first legislation and.that decision caused us to begin to.shift our intervention focus to a.prevention focus and develop a.prevention plan so that when abuse.neglect reports have made on families.rather than having a traditional.intervention system we would have a.prevention system that would have the.ability to serve families intact through.the support of the federal government.for and reimbursements that we never had.before and so building an evidence-based.array of services that could intervene.with families at the time and when when.a report is made gave us a tremendous.opportunity to really look at how to.strengthen families and so the whole.notion of a family first Prevention plan.that we're building in Connecticut is.one for strengthening families the Nexus.to the strategic plan is at the time.precoded forty percent of the reports.coming in or coming in from schools and.that gave us a great opportunity to work.with educational settings and work with.families and communities in identifying.need and being able to target.interventions to address those needs.while we kept families together and.prevented kids from having to come into.foster care or having to endure lengthy.interventions by a Child Protection.Agency.unfortunately that work has stopped due.to the kovetz situation we'll talk about.later.the second area that we have really.improved our efforts around it or our.fatherhood initiative having the ability.to engage fathers and bring fathers into.fat back into families and healthy ways.and not only fathers but the whole.paternal side of the family that often.get missed when we are serving when we.served them traditionally and we focused.only on the maternal family father's.brought up what the paternal side.brought a wealth of resources aunts and.uncles and everyone else who can be a.support to that family network that they.didn't have before is how fatherhood.work has been incredibly successful in.having families and having children stay.connected to their dads and having dads.play a more active and supportive role.to their child particularly academically.so those are two areas out of many that.we've done I'm gonna let Matt Foley talk.a little bit more about what we do when.children unfortunately have to come into.foster care and are committed in our.care so the first the first thing we've.done has changed our focus to a.well-being focus rather than just a.safety only focus and well-being our.well-being approach now has caused us to.look at education of our children in a.very different way and assure.particularly kissed Kate with the work.third grade that are in foster care.we're starting behind that we invest.significant resources in you know in.them so that they can catch up Matt you.want to take it from you.yeah thank you Michael yes as we know no.third grade is really the benchmark that.all school districts are trying to.achieve with with our children's get.into grade level by grade three so.obviously when we get little ones coming.into care we have all hands on deck.approach with the variety of services.that we we offer and I think you know.looking at the policy recommendations I.think you know we are hitting a lot of.these recommendations are.primarily with our partnership with SDE.you know Commissioner Cardona talked.about all the things that need to be.done and about absenteeism chronic.absenteeism curriculum but for us our.partnership is really relying on the.sharing of data because our students our.youth are such a transient population.they can fall through the cracks as they.say and have an ability to share our.length system data with with State.Department of Ed is critical on making.sure that we don't have gaps in students.transitions from school to school or.district to district and even from state.to state in some cases so I think that's.great to see that that's that's.happening that we have the transparency.and any NSD really doing their part with.the approved private special ed programs.that many of our foster kids.unfortunately have to be attending and.having the staff to oversee that oversee.those programs and have those programs.report out their progress and.achievements it is critical so I think.you know our struggles moving forward as.you know from a resource perspective is.you know having so many kids come in and.out of care and having the staffing to.to really have that personalized.experience with with the ratios is it.will be a challenge moving forward but.really targeting our k3 as Michael said.is going to be critical because we know.that if we can catch them early and give.them all the supports and resources that.they need that we can get them at grade.level in their respective districts but.having the partnership and the access to.FTE.and the sharing of data is pivotal so we.fully support that the recommendations.within this plan and just let me add.that and I showed us at this early on.introductions that Commissioner Dorantes.desperately wanted to be on this call.and she definitely sends her her regrets.she physically is not able to do it but.she's been a huge advocate of this.partnership between the department.certain families and and State.Department education thank you any.questions thank you thank you I'm going.to call on um did you just do dis your.branch yes I did um can you thank you.this is Patricia Nunez for the judicial.branch also I had an opportunity to.review the master plan to eliminate the.achievement gap in Connecticut and my.focus was really with the students in.the state care section so I just want to.point out that effective July 1st 2018.there is no more youth on parole I know.that's included in the plan but that has.now that responsibility was transferred.over to the judicial branch so that we.now have juvenile was placed on what's.called probation with placement and the.branch is responsible for residential.placements for those juveniles those.placements can occur within our state.detention centers that are also.responsible for educating the students.or in a number of contracted residential.placement programs and there's multiple.of those around the state of Connecticut.so through the juvenile justice planning.and oversight committee there's been an.education committee that's been meeting.for quite some time the recommendation.that has been put forth and is moving.forward and continuing to be flushed out.is for the Department of Children and.Families to provide oversight of.education for youth in the detention.facilities and juvenile justice out of.home placements so we're continuing to.meet in that committee to flush out.those recommending.further are there any questions so the.next agency I'm going to call on is the.Department of economic and Community.Development please I vacuum can you hear.me okay yes we can hear you.okay great so I'm sorry I'm having some.challenges with my video so hopefully I.can get it to work momentarily but I'll.jump right in.I plan to be brief and again like from.our agency's perspective I was really.looking at it through the lens of the.result statement regarding children will.live with their families and economic.stability because a part of you know our.our agency's main mission is to ensure.that we are providing opportunity and in.being responsible for strengthening.Connecticut's competitive position and.this rapidly changing knowledge-based.global economy and so from that.perspective you know that really means.ensuring that we are growing inclusively.and we are providing everybody an.opportunity to either be an entrepreneur.start their business grow their business.and/or develop their skills to be.productive participants in our workforce.if you will and so with that lens DCD.has kind of really focused on some key.areas that are aligned with the master.plan from the workforce development.perspective we provide free.apprenticeship and apprenticeship.program income bar worker training.program we have textile and boot camps.to ensure that our 18 to 24 and 24 to 30.year old residents are actually able to.skill up and participate in this very.tech enabled economy and providing them.with those.opportunities and access to get coding.skills to that now then again be.available to be an active participant in.this this innovation based economy if.you will we on an exponential learning.and access for students we support it.College connections so this is a.partnership with Quintin Boggs Naugatuck.and as mentuk where we focus on the.community college level but we are.pairing those with the local school.district to provide access to further.their education and get credit for.college credit if you will so again.starting that College awareness and and.college access very early and providing.them a leg up before they matriculate.out of the K through 12 system dream it.do it is another exponential learning.and access for students particularly.focused on the manufacturing field as.many of you know Connecticut is you know.one of our core industries is.manufactures manufacturing rather and it.has been growing and there's a worker.shortage you have the silver Sonata mean.yet happening within the manufacturing.industry but then also you have this.skills gap and so how can we again.provide that early access from middle.school and awareness for parents.teachers and students on the field of.manufacturing and how it has changed.drastically to more again tech enabled.skilled enabled work environment and so.how do we ensure that our kids are aware.of these opportunities understand that.it's not kind of that old dusty you know.kind of perception that a lot of.families may have about manufacturing.because of the technology advancements.in that environment and so we provide.and support opportunities for young.people to participate in those type of.programs from our arts education and.access and improving school climate.culture bonnie koba who's on the who's.on a call here as well she kind of heads.up a lot of this work but it's really.again providing you know improving.school climate and culture through.strategic and equitable arts access and.opportunities in programming for.students but also educators and.providing residency programs.professional development again to.incorporate the arts and using art as a.key driver in breaking down barriers if.you will we have a few partnership with.the Center for non-violence and again.that that is really focused on breaking.down community barriers that are rooted.in poverty racism and then we have a.partnership with the Connecticut Peace.Center that is really just disrupting.this whole school to Prison Pipeline.so within our kind of scope and sphere.of influence and our you know limited.resources we are trying to really make.terrible investment to again be.inclusive and ensure that we're.providing our residents and families.opportunities to provide that economic.stability in their households because we.know that is a key indicator of future.success for our students if you will and.so that said you know I've been in this.role for about a year of coming in with.the new administration and so you know.we're really trying to get our hands.around you know an economic strategy and.we were on pace to do that prior to.kovat and obviously as you all have had.to deal with pivoting and putting things.to the side to deal with the crisis but.we're now really looking at okay now.what does recovery look like and what.does a growth look like and how do we.ensure that we are really and and really.making investment and our most.vulnerable communities I'm an ensuring.that we're rising lifting all boats if.you will I'm an ensuring that we're.providing capacity and resources for.economic stability of our residents and.that.again workforce development because that.is economic development at a bare.minimum everybody should be able to be.gainfully employed and to provide for.their family and so that's a key.initiative of ours.but then also having the ability to.economic empowerment if you will and.with that comes ownership and how can we.again support entrepreneur support.business growth because again that.transcend and translate to economic.stability for our family so I'll stop.there thank you I'm going to call on.higher education dr. Jane gates I.believe has joined us dr. gates are you.done yes I am I mean I definitely in.here.I can speak briefly to want to perhaps.the most recent effort from the CSU.system here and that is one where we're.focusing heavily on the equity.mindedness in how we engage with our.students in in all of our programs who.are enrolled to attain credentials we.have determined that the catalysts for.accessing assessing their equity.mindedness is best achieved through.looking very carefully and closely at.the outcomes of those programs as.students matriculate which eventually.will affect the quality and the success.of students who are matriculated we have.partnerships with the National Institute.for learning outcomes some of you are.probably familiar with mala WA on this.project it will engage with us it's a.new initiative on workshops technical.assistance on building faculty capacity.in the affor.mentioned skillsets there and that is.closing that equity gap gap and ensuring.that the learning the modules and books.and everything are the highest quality.in assuring the program design redesign.and implementation.I read the policy recommendations there.are they're included in your initial.report we also are working very closely.with our New England Commission for.higher education.Nachi and that day to focus on.institutional excellence and continuous.improvement through innovation but the.most important thing I think we're.focusing on is equity mindedness and.this is it we're really interested in.closing the achievement gap our programs.must intentionally focus on equity and.that of course whether students are.being equally and equitably well served.and this is particularly true for our a.PPS so we are looking also our.strategies and our policies we look at.our policies we look at our we determine.what those outcomes are all of this is.just very critical in terms of it inter.inter aggregated to stop interrogation.to stop systemic equity issues for.student populations we have to unpack.what we've done what have we not done as.well as we should have done and how do.we correct these practices that.definitely support inclusion and equity.and eventually as these persons.matriculate move out into our.communities who then teach our youth.we're able then to see a positive impact.on not only an increase in the number of.minority teachers which is absolutely.critical we know what the research shows.but we're also able to see that impact.on earth students in our public schools.it's to me it's.the focus has to be a 21st century.within the 21st century contacts and.that is intentionally creating policies.and practices that affect this ecosystem.where we leverage the resources that we.have and move toward closing that.achievement gap.I read the recommendations and it I may.have missed something here because I'm.coming on in place of mark but what I.didn't see I didn't see any reference at.all to this culture all the cultural.focus it is critically important that.persons who engage regardless of their.ethnic backgrounds understand culturally.how students perceive the lens that they.Greenes learning to are even to academia.I mean it's important cultural.sensitivity I didn't see that I didn't.see that at all in any of the references.any of the recommendations and I think.that's absolutely but I know that's.absolutely essential in order to.communicate to understand and this is.true of kids from early grades K grades.when they enter and this is speaking not.only from an academic perspective of a.parent who did the PTA the parent.teacher and engaging where we have these.small kids particularly male children.who come from menara x populations were.frequently tow that they're there.they're misbehaving but that's part but.that's part of their cultural sort of.engagement we have to understand.multiculturalism and be very much.sensitized to why our children behave.the way that they behave and also to.value each child and visitor history and.that's unfortunately what I don't see.that's one of the things we're talking.about in the CSC you system for those of.you who read the newspaper you.see there is an op-ed on our the board.saying look we must include diversity in.an FYE course first when you're.experienced this is part of what we're.doing we're looking at that 21st century.context and realizing that we must be.very intentional in how we provide high.quality learning in higher education so.that's just a few things if I had more.time here that took a picture I would.have added several more but bloomin up.by the way has been enormous support and.there's they're providing support for.this current initiative as well as the.Commons a QA Commons so we have a lot of.national partners pre engaged with this.and I have the Institute for higher.education policy who also have supported.how we engage with their students and.this is inclusive of the epp s as well.thank you guys thank you dr. gates okay.so the next agency I'd like to ask to.present is the office of policy and.management pasta just stepped away he'll.be back in a moment okay and so I'm.going to call on Department of Social.Services I'm not sure if there's anyone.on the call from there okay.can add the office of early childhood.okay did I miss any agencies that need.to report out at this time so why don't.we do this Cory why don't we start on.the agency's covin 19 ending the.achievement gap and then if we need to.catch up with Kosta he can do both parts.or if any we have anyone else who joins.us they can do both reports okay.so I'm going to the next do we want to.go over the questions that they need to.do asked answer too sure if you'd like.yes I'll do that.okay so during this presentation you're.asked to speak to your agency's efforts.during Co vid 19 and how they can help.to close the achievement gap currently.and looking forward and so I'm going to.call on the Department of Economic.Development can you hear me okay yes.okay great.so as part of our effort you know as an.agency we were to some extent or to all.extent in the eye of the storm if you.will with respect to you know the.economic crisis in the health crisis.that we were dealing with and and so.with that we launched several programs.in response to help our small businesses.in our business community relative to.our Connecticut bridge loan funds.our head co woman and minority loan.funds again to support stabilizing.operations to those small businesses.again so in the vein of you know.ensuring that we are providing economic.stability for our families that was kind.of again us supporting our business.community are who are the fabrics and.the driving force our economy to again.help them stabilize through this very.challenging time and unprecedented time.in crisis if you will and so in addition.to that we also provided arts grants to.arts organizations as well as artists so.we had an arts relief and respond fund.again to help people sustain themselves.and again providing and and really.ensuring that we can invest in some.level of sustainability to waver and to.weather this storm and if you will.one of the bigger initiatives that we.did that I think is most relevant to.kind of closing the achievement gap and.focusing on the work is our workforce.development initiatives so in.partnership with the governor's.workforce Council and Dec DS tech talent.fun we put forth.close to $800,000 on remote learning and.so to the extent that we have people.that are unemployed.you know underemployed are looking to.change careers or what have you because.there are you know our unemployment rate.is well over 500,000 and so what can we.do to support these individuals in a.remote learning environment to come out.stronger right and to look for.opportunities because while there were.certain sectors of our economy that were.most impacted food services.accommodations and lodging or what have.you we know that in other sectors such.as manufacturing and IT those jobs were.increasing right and we're still.available and so again how do we use.this opportunity to scale up our our.workforce.and ensure that they can provide they.can get access to new opportunities and.come out of this stronger so those are.some of the several of the things that.we've done again through this crisis in.direct response to Kovac and and now.we're really shifting our efforts you.know now that we're in phase to.reopening we will be focusing on Phase.three.mid July you know a good portion of our.economy ninety five percent.approximately it's open and so now how.do we shift that towards recovery and.reimagining right because I think we all.learned a lot we all understand the.challenges relative to broad bandwidth.and access to Internet and the the.challenges that were there pre COBIT but.now they were exacerbated because it's.really now a public utility right and so.again how do we begin to shift our.thinking on how we come out of this.stronger and more resilient and in new.ways and new ideas of doing things in.the future if you will so we're working.on you know an economic recovery plan.and so I know there's a going to be a.lot of alignment with kind of the work.and that's in the master plan that's.outlined but then how do we.strategically begin to work with our.partners because we're all in this.together and I think that's one thing we.learned through this crisis is that.we're all in this together our.collective action our collective impact.has helped us come out of this and it's.continuing to help us come out of this.and so as we think about recovery we're.gonna have to lean on all of our our.capabilities and our agencies to drive.in one direction if you will so more on.that to come if you will thank you thank.you much thank you I heard somebody was.looking for me I'm sorry that in several.ways the best permitted to answer a.question for the governor and a standard.issue but anyway I'm back if there's.something I was needed for.so Kosta it's Susan so why don't you go.ahead and make your report both on.progress OPM's made toward addressing.the achievement gap and also any special.efforts during kovat for the kovat 19 we.we were doing them separately but you.can jump in and do both well I can say.that since I haven't this is Mike my.first and of course carrie has been.coming to these meetings I can suggest.that and I'm working with the.commissioner and of course working with.the office of early childhood we've.attempted to assist in closing a gap in.reaching out to those areas in those.communities with respect to the internet.access and computer systems that they're.gonna require laptops things that they.require and need and we're looking at.there was a great survey done by the.Commission iOS before him but certainly.we're on board in dealing and ensuring.that we meet those critical needs I.think some of the concerns that were.raised the other day on the distance.learning portion of it access to.broadband and the impact of that the.costs really associated with access to.broadband and the various ages as we.know that each part of the state doesn't.have the same accessibility to Internet.services that are as good as they are in.some other areas if at all for that.matter and that they don't exist at all.and how do we overcome some of that is.one of the issues so that if we're going.to be talking about students learning.remotely and having access to those.systems so we are in support of that.we're working hand in glove with the.other agencies the two agencies.predominantly to to ensure that they.have funding resources to meet the.programmatic needs and I think there's a.commitment to do that and you've done.that to this point and now we of course.are are looking at our reopening plans.as you know because I think there is a a.sincere.appreciation for the fact that students.need to find themselves back into the.buildings that I have the great pleasure.of being involved in renovating and.rebuilding and now assisting community.districts and how we're going to manage.the spaces so we get these kids into the.school because I think that's critical.to meeting meeting the needs of these.students and they should be including.schools so that times I think it's a.general report that I'm making G because.again I don't have what was behind me.with respect to Carrie and Kelly that.was part of the you're part of the group.from the beginning so I apologize for.that but those are some of the things.we're doing now which is to stay on top.with permission of Cardona and of course.Commission to buy to ensure they are.meeting their needs and and we provide.the resources necessary thank you thank.you thank you very much next we're going.to call on Doug Casey from Department of.Administrative Services super well.so you can see my screen.yes got a few slides to share with you.and so I first wanted to just share out.as a bit of context the the five year.educational technology plan just some.highlights here that really speaks to.the master plan in terms of that threat.of equity of and again echoing some of.what Kosta just said the the access to.technology for students.these have been for the past 20 years.front and foremost with the Commission.for educational technology through das.as an interagency commission that.champions digital learning it's so.across both infrastructure and and.looking at student competencies and and.digital literacies all the way down to.data privacy this is the sort of true.line that we're working against this.five year education technology plan and.so when we look at the work that took.place at a more accelerated pace in.March with closings really this just.highlighted the work that was already in.place so to be a little bit more.specific the work that started taking.place at a Editor an amplified pace in.March we launched a set of remote.learning resources that have seen a ton.of traffic our districts our parents you.know even the educational technology.community that is playing a critical.role in providing innovative solutions.to support remote learning all of those.parties have been accessing the research.that we put together so again these are.extensions of our state plan we've.included guiding considerations because.supporting remote and blended learning.has to start with leadership and the.plan and strategy time goes into.planning framework so you can sort of.put some meat to the bones around remote.and distance learning part of a key part.of what we call an essential.dition is obviously getting devices and.broadband into into kids hands and I.think the context of what we're talking.about today.understanding that mobility can also.play into the the the connectivity.factor to there's no one-size-fits-all.in terms of addressing the digital.divide and so looking at that context of.where students live what availability.there is has been front and foremost in.in our recommendations and resources we.have put out a huge amount of effort to.make sure that the innovative technology.solutions that are on the open market.are available to our school districts to.our teachers worked really closely with.the Department of Education and have.made sure that those solutions are not.just available but they're also safe so.a lot of work around data privacy so.that as students are spending more and.more time online with an explosion of.software that's capturing their data.that that data is safe and protected.we've also spent a good amount of time.on free and openly licensed software.which again speaks to the master plan in.using curriculum as change agent and.also looking at not just providing.technology through digital curriculum.suited for the the haves but also making.sure that high quality standards aligned.curriculum and digital learning.materials are available for every single.school district we on the national level.we have spent a lot of time advocating.for changes in funding so through the.outside the the boundaries of.Connecticut working with national.advocacy groups to change programs like.ear aid for example that fund.school-based connectivity but don't yet.fund at home connectivity so we're.working with a number of different.national organizations we've reached out.to Senator Blumenthal's office given his.role in the work force committee to.make sure that we get as much support.and advocacy for those changes because.right now school is at home and it's.outside of those four walls we need to.make sure that there's funding to.support that on the we conducted a.survey in April of school technology.leaders and superintendents and I know.that the Department of Education has.recently released another survey ours.was really focused on technology because.that's what the Commission for education.technology does some quick highlights.and I would encourage you to take a look.through the full report not surprisingly.disappointingly that digital divide is.is more acute in the socioeconomically.challenged areas of Connecticut as well.as availability being a factor we had.really good data on prior to coated.related closures which schools had.one-to-one programs and which schools.have really expanded those programs to.make sure every student get active guys.to access to both connectivity and a.device and really looking at the needs.of districts what they're planning on.spending money on to prepare for online.blended learning in the fall so some.really good data and results there one.area of concern to ensure that every.district and every student has access to.these digital learning tools is we are.seeing a deficit in district planning.around supports specifically that those.technology professionals who are now.answering support calls 24 by 7 because.of the shift to remote learning so I.think from an equity perspective and.looking at digital learning becoming.really learning these days looking at.all those factors and how they how they.how they factor in to plans for the.future and potentially our role a couple.other quick points here based on the the.role of the Commission and so the work.that we've been doing for two decades.now around digital equity our.recommendations for cares act funding.that came into Connecticut included.obviously focus on digital equity.broadband devices and the competencies.to support them open education resources.so that we move some of this open.education resources to support access to.high quality standards aligned digital.curriculum a key area here for teachers.is professional development the quality.of learning and access to high quality.learning really depends on school.districts providing those supports to.the teachers and I know there's.tremendous work going on but the.Department of Education currently to.ramp up those resources we're working in.partnership on that front and finally.looking at technology efficacy so all.this money that's being spent on.technology what are we getting out of.that and looking at optimizing that.spend to the districts the impact on.districts now of just operating can be.can be optimized and spending less money.hopefully on technology only where it's.needed and has been proven efficient and.effective the last slide I will share is.related to what some on the call and.referred to already the governor has.talked about or has convened a group of.a small group of folks to look at rapid.the rapid deployment of connectivity.getting internet access to all citizens.so this is a a group effort across decd.Department of Ed the Office of Consumer.Council the Connecticut Education.Network which connects every single.school and in public university in the.state as well as the Commission and so.the focus of our work is really.identifying those barriers to.connectivity where there is no.connectivity or whether it's to expenses.even attitudinal issues of an aversion.to technology in certain households or.certain into.let's get over those barriers let's.measure and target those gaps there is.no really good National Broadband map so.can we develop our own we're looking at.data collection methods to to do that.prioritizing the connection to students.and educators obviously and supporting.this with an awareness campaign to make.sure that we tap all of our extended.network of community groups professional.organizations even the Realtors groups.to make sure that every option is made.available to the broader community to.get citizens online and especially.students and then finally looking at the.point in the solutions so that we can do.the best job we can to make sure that.students have access to devices and the.internet when the fall comes and so that.again everyone has an equal opportunity.to access high quality learning that's a.mouthful I appreciate any any questions.folks might have be good hand things.back over to Carrie thank you the next.speaker is going to be a patrician.unions and judicial thank you hi good.afternoon.so again with you know the kovat crisis.that occurred with us our priority was.on the safety of our juveniles in our.state detention centers so you know lots.of planning took place with regard to.getting PPE equipment into place um our.educational providers worked with us and.the facilities to provide educational.packets for our kids so that education.programming would not be disrupted it.was a bit challenging to to get the.juveniles you know with their PPE.equipment in place you know and.encouraging them to complete work but.that was successful we worked with our.educational providers on to implement.and phone calls with our juveniles so.that they did not lose contact with.their teachers and the teachers were.able to call into the facilities.and to provide support and some.questions for the students and encourage.and motivate them to continue what.they're learning.we weren't collaboratively with the.Center for educational excellence and.alternative settings ceas they provided.a plethora of educational resources and.supports to our providers we did lots of.work also with regard to discharge.planning so our juveniles who were able.to their release so lots of planning.around their district schools with.regard to getting them can make sure.their educational plans to ensure that.they had access to technology and that.they were able to log into educational.on systems to complete learning as the.Kovac crisis moved along and we were.able to lift restrictions on our our.children they were able to transition.back into the classrooms and we did.utilize some distance learning.technology through a secured zoom.platform so that juveniles were able to.interact more effectively with their.teachers than complete the school so.that was that was a nice collaborative.effort I did also want to let folks know.that we do we are working on a request.for proposals for tablets to provide to.our juveniles and our veteran facilities.that would have been come loaded with.educational and vocational content so.that they can continue and catch up on.any educational areas that are.identified we're scheduled to implement.a summer enrichment program that we do.every year for eight weeks during the.summer months.the focus this year will be on reading.as that was identified as an area that.our juveniles are in need of getting.some additional support on so the summer.enrichment program encourages continued.learning throughout the summer and to.prevent you know that slippage that we.see all too often that occurs during the.summer months and then I just want to.wrap up on a high note and to highlight.that we did just last week have a.graduate in our Hartford regions.treatment program graduated from high.school our education what educational.provider would really closely with the.district school and piecing together all.of the students credits to ensure that.he did actually have everything he.needed to graduate and they provided him.with a graduation ceremony complete with.cap and gown in the facility so I just.wanted to share that thank you.yeah Thank You Patricia next up is a new.Commissioner Shelton Hanks from housing.and I think we're going to share some.slides you seen my screen no no yeah no.let me see if I need to do some.from here are you saying it out no one.minute it seems that you should be able.to see it especially representor yeah I.don't see your screen stranger Shantae.why don't you kind of summarize and then.maybe what we can do is Cherie can.distribute them around to everyone that.were seeing out there there you know yes.okay so during Kovac the Department of.Housing work to decompress shelters and.in provide safe housing and secure food.for about the role population which.includes children and families our focus.is now on rapid rehousing so a statewide.in the pan for day the Action Network.region breakdown is illustrated here.housing resource refers to exits using.rapid rehousing or supportive housing.funds I'm sorry that's outside soap.resolve refers to families who exited to.housing that they are paying for with.their own income or for families who are.moving back to live with relatives or.friends and finally one-time assistance.includes families who were diverted from.homelessness or who are rapidly exited.so as you can see 197 family statewide.exited homelessness to permanent housing.from March 10th this year to June 23rd.as of today so I broke down the regions.you see central had 16 families that.were moved into permanent housing the.eastern part of.seit had 23 families Fairfield County.had 45 Greater Hartford 33 Greater New.Haven 44 Middlesex Meriden wallingford.area had 11 families and the Northwest.region had 25 families with respect to.school-age children and the digital.divide as we heard here today there were.challenges in the shelter's in certain.regions concerning Wi-Fi this is also a.very necessary resource in addition to.working laptops that was also.challenging finally I say the update.because I thought Commissioner Cardona.would mention it but wanted to be.certain to report the Department of.Housing and the Department of Education.are partnering for a housing incentive.program as a recruitment tool for child.teachers in particular educators of.color and more to keep that any.questions okay the next on presentation.will be from the Kristine from the.Department of Public Health okay thank.you so with the closure of health.centers which we know are really.critical for medical and mental health.services for many many students across.Connecticut we were pleased to see a.very quick transition from in-person.services to telehealth visits with our.clinicians so BPH is very pleased with.that we have 20 out of our 20.contractors providing some form of.telehealth services to the students that.we serve through school-based health.centers we also have several that have.tried to continue setting up are working.towards setting up some type of vaccine.clinic or physicals so students can.still stay on top of getting these.critical services because that we as we.have read you know people are afraid to.go to there well visit and falling.behind when it comes to vaccines gph has.been very supportive with our.school-based health centers we've had.several calls with them and we have.stayed in touch with them through this.time I've also had a lot of.communication with some of our national.resources our national school-based.health center alliance so we're able to.connect our contractors with any.resources or communications with any.other clinics or providers if they need.the help moving forward we're you know.encouraging our school-based health.centers to work closely with the schools.in the administration because we think.that they will be a critical piece in.reopening and getting children back up.to par when it comes to health and.mental health over this past time.students being home we've read a lot of.things about how their mental health.really could be struggling at this time.so we hope that they'll be utilized in.the plans moving forward as our schools.reopen or whatever the whatever the.format will be in the fall thank you.you're welcome.thank you thank you so much and next I'd.like to call on the Department of.Children and Families is Michael.for us when when we entered this this at.the beginning of the pandemic we thought.it was one thing that when it was.compounded with economic crisis and then.the social unrest due to the police.brutality and other racial issues in our.society it has quickly turned into.something else.and it has had a profound impact on our.practice of child protection and shallow.welfare we at the Department hosted what.we call the color of coded presentations.a couple of them led by dr. Reggie Eadie.the president CEO of Trinity Health here.in the Greater Hartford area and in it.in their presentation he began to talk.about the disproportionality.disproportionate infections of the.Kovach disease but he brought it from a.racial perspective showing where social.determinants in health had played a.major impact as to how this disease.spread and basically the bottom line is.what your zip code determines a lot of.what happens to you than any other.determinants and that became true in.child protection as well and in.education and so we've had to step back.I heard miss things talk about it in in.the ECD lead to indicia of till we.imagine what our practice can look like.and should look like going forward as a.result of what we're experiencing first.and foremost as a relates to families we.implemented a strict kind of virtual.environment in which families would to.be supportive be served and in our.contractor providers to are serving.families through telehealth mostly and.in that with all the projections that.people have that kids were going to be.harmed significantly because they were.out of view of communities and all that.we haven't seen that actually we've seen.some pretty quick things happen things.to build on for the future that there.are some promise obviously social.interactions in physical contact is.important but what we've introduced.somehow into the human service community.by way of telehealth and virtual contact.has a lot of promise for how we should.go forward in serving families families.actually love it and we see a lot of.protective factors and families when it.comes to their children during this.crises it causes us to believe that if.we shift our our our approach with.serving families particularly families.of color that are disproportionately.impacted by all of our systems and.produce a lot of the inequities we see.in education we move from a surveillance.approach to the supportive supportive.approach we think we'll start seeing.some promising results and so for us.we've made a lot of changes in do.through executive order to lift some of.the things that we normally do and those.changes we're looking at continuing.posts this because we see families have.served better this way obviously we we.are going to go back to face to face but.right now as it relates to children when.the majority of our reporters to our.Carolina schools and that went down.quite significantly in children who are.who have been a part of our system had.been harmed at the level that people.thought it would happen and actually the.reverse has occurred you know we we have.a lot to think about when we talk about.our role in which we play with families.particularly families which shows with.children that are that are in school.that we can be a lot more supportive and.we were barriers to those sort of.succeeding educationally because of the.excessive kinds of expectations and.mandates we put on families that they.couldn't meet and it created stress and.families that caused kids to be overly.concerned about whether or not they're.going to stay with their parents of you.removed and have to go live with.strangers in foster care.and so we have a lot to learn in our.system is definitely open now to hearing.what role we can play in improving.outcomes and eliminating disparities we.see in our systems based on race Matt is.the superintendent if there's anything.in more detail you want to talk about.from a Kovach perspective around.education for our students and our.facilities our kids in care yeah Mike I.think you you really summed it up well.and I'm just very proud of the work out.agency is doing during these these tough.times but it is creating opportunity for.our our students and our families you.know just moving forward is the concern.you know about putting our our students.in buckets you know with the absenteeism.the tardiness all those things that come.that are going to be come forward when.we return so I think you know and that's.kind of you know we'll see in the.reopening plans what that looks like on.you know attendance rates and and so.forth but I think you summed it up well.on you know we're learning a lot during.this time and I think you know very.proud of our students and families who.really risen to the occasion during this.crisis in many many circumstances so.we've been able to support families when.when reports are made instead of having.to Val face to face and we hear that the.primary issue that is causing the report.is family need we've been able to.intervene with need to to meet the needs.of families virtually and including.their their needs for kids they connect.it to their educational assistance.because sometimes it's it's it's about a.electric utility bill that's that's been.turned off which prevents them from.having access to internet and.connectivity and other things but it's.called in because kids are hungry and.we're able to look through.and find a way to be able to strengthen.the whole family rather than just having.to make a determination if a kid is safe.the children are safe those are things.that have helped us kind of really move.our system along to become our family.strengthening system more than just a.child protection system thank you next.time we're going to call on our.Department of Education thank you I just.want to underscore what I just heard and.I was pleased to hear it in.conversations with our partners at DCF.you know as we think about moving.forward we meet to reflect on these last.month's and maybe some of the.assumptions or some of the patterns that.we don't see in reporting maybe we need.to look at that and recognize that we.have to question some of our own.assumptions I'm glad to hear the numbers.are down I'm glad to hear it's a service.approach that's what we need in.Connecticut and I hope we can continue.that momentum moving forward for our.families you know I love hearing all the.different comments and how it's being at.the end of the day we're helping.children.we're helping families in Connecticut.and that was the intent that was the.vision of the interagency Council and it.was developed how do we come together.around you serve the same families how.do we come together to to do them more.efficiently and so it was really great.to hear everything that's happening.especially during this time of Kovac you.know Deputy Commissioner will be jumping.in very quickly with some specifics on.the areas of academic support and.social-emotional support which i think.is good for the group d here we've.prioritized as was mentioned by many.others the importance of equitable.access to technology after Kovan you.know we always say education is a great.equalizer but if.the tools are not there you know we're.we're gaps are being Catherine growing.so equitable access to technology.connectivity I think matters also but.content is an area that we historically.of the agency haven't really focused on.you could have connectivity you could.have a beautiful device but if the.content that you have to connect to is.low level or substandard then the.delivery of instruction or the the the.learning is lower level so imagine that.over time what trajectory we're going to.set up for our students who might be.showing up with connectivity with.devices ready to learn the content.matters so we've really stood up a.system to have high quality content.available to students and what we're.going to try to do especially during.this time of poet is make it available.to every student every district free of.charge for this upcoming year so that if.remote learning is is something that has.to happen again the second round of it.is better than the first round and I.commend the teachers and educators.everybody that had to scramble with very.little notice but we want to support.districts and we want to support.families with content that's.high-quality and accessible to those who.have access to it so that's how we're.that's how we're prioritizing any.funding that were receiving to.supporting that we know that.professional development which was.mentioned before it's a critical.component to getting not only distance.learning up and running you know in a.highly effective way but also everything.that our country has faced over the last.three months has given us time to think.about what we need to do as educators to.be prepared to meet our students where.they are when they come to us and how.we're meeting their close emotional.needs but their experience with trauma.in many cases it's coded 19 trauma and.loss of life and family in other cases.is that coupled with the tension that.they see with their communities and the.unrest and and the challenges that.they're facing grappling with that how.we prepare time to welcome these.students and and be able to meet their.needs there so we're really focused on.that and you know I think the most.important thing that we're trying to.focus on is how to safely reopen our.buildings because there is no substitute.for in school experience you know that.connection that emotional connection.that students need you know this is okay.but it's it doesn't replace that.emotional connection and that social.connection that students need so the.goal is to try to do so in a way that we.communicate options and ensure that we.have a plan forward for Connecticut.we've been focusing a lot of energy on.that and after this call we're going to.continue to focus energy on down we want.to try to get information out as soon as.possible to do that and that's what.primary focus here at the agency next.slide please.I won't go into all this but we've been.thinking about things in a systemic way.so you know random acts of good practice.are good for that moment but if they're.not connected to some systemic approach.to addressing co-head response and a.reentry it then they're there in.isolation we've been focusing very.closely on listening we've listened to.various stakeholders we listen to.parents students we've had focus group.we've had surveys we've listened to our.partners from the superintendent Forge.of Education the unions you know we've.partnered with philanthropy on laptop.laptops and and getting access so.there's been so much work done I want to.commend the team at the agency for.really redefining what their role is and.just doing whatever they have to do to.roll up their sleeves and do what we.need to do well transition over now to.and so a couple things that were.mentioned you know we're working with.DCF to think about what does it look.like moving forward Oh II see this.morning we had a conversation about how.we share messaging around the importance.of early childhood education and the.housing deputy commissioner hangs thank.you for bringing up the fact that you.know we have things underway and how we.can connect.serve the same families and the more we.do these efforts the better is going to.be at the end of the day then be the.Commissioner will we'll take over from.here to share some specifics on our.social emotional supports as well as our.academic support for districts and.Families Thank You commissioner and I.know we're a real-time challenge so I.will be sensitive to that but just to.the Commission esporte about rethinking.the way we support districts what you.just see on the slide in the screen is.kind of the public facing part of our.website of the professional support.series that we've developed out for.districts and we've kind of organized.them and also for parents and for.families you know students with.disabilities we're talking about what's.going on in the talents base I mean.there were a lot of flexibilities that.we needed to provide and the.Commissioner mentioned social-emotional.learning so there is a lot of live and.recorded webinars that were done this on.our website and available I'll.specifically talk to occurring the next.slide on social emotional supports as we.talked about that as the Commissioner.mentioned we know very very well that.not only our educators but our students.and families are certainly we're only.one student in one student said we're.all experiencing one trauma together and.and which is so appropriate and so we've.done guidance and social-emotional.learning even grief supports often.school community we know that we have we.have educators award themselves suffer.loss we as students or and that they're.supporting their students as well and so.those are just links I know we'll.probably these will make these available.to students from the engagement efforts.that we've done engaging families and.specific supports around trauma and and.really wellness in general for families.so those are just examples I'll share.with you as a commissioner mentioned.that we are listening to stakeholders we.stood up a thought exchange platform to.collect information to hear student.voice and we've heard from over 16,000.students that's telling us about their.experience in learning from home and.other ways that we've heard from other.stakeholders as well so social emotional.well-being was a priority Preet :.and given the related trauma anxiety and.distance from relationships from school.for our students during this pandemic.it's a renewed effort to make sure that.we're addressing social emotional and.mental health supports in what it is.that we're doing and we've heard that.loud and clear from where they may be.dissident voices around how we go back.to school.one thing is clear from every provider.that social emotional learning and.mental health support is something that.we have to pay close attention to in.going back to school so that is.certainly an area of increase increased.focus and as you can see from where the.commissioners starting started and.leveraging our resources and finally.I've always valued and trans together so.thank you for that opportunity.Thank You Courtney very much the next.would be dr. Jane gates from the office.of higher education ok please leave a.like on camera here thank you guys like.all of you we we pivoted very quickly.from one ground to what we're calling.remote learning primarily because we.knew we weren't quite up to speed on the.quality of the learning that we should.produce across all 16 institutions and.the sternum up State College is online.anyway so I'm only now speaking to the.16 institutions in terms of closing the.equity what are the things we focused on.the care is fine there is a block but.mom took money the.I worded to every student who filled out.a FAFSA and who in fact was eligible to.receive title for funds to assist with.the financial hardship of our students.we also focused on providing laptops to.all of the students it's been if you did.to assist with remote learning and the.biggest thing I think we did to ensure.at least getting ready for the fall and.reimagining what our classrooms will.look like we have provided invested.quite a bit of money in professional.development in order to ensure that our.faculty are ready and that in fact they.are focused on learning sciences and.inclusive pedagogy because students.learn differently in the classroom as.well as remotely and ensuring that.there's some type of framework that.leads to what we refer to as universal.design learning so we will offer getting.ready for the fall of variation.modalities we have the high flex the.blended the fully on ground the.different types of remote Nonis.depending upon of course the the social.distancing requirement and the classroom.size because all of our institutions.have various facilities that that's to.ensure that the most important thing.we're doing also and we learn from this.is that students it wasn't the hardware.it wasn't the laptop again it was the.accessibility to Wi-Fi for some of our.many of our students and that was.affording the cost of Wi-Fi in their.areas so we have focused on ensuring.that that has become more accessible to.our students we recently sent out a.survey to the community college students.to see how are we doing here and 73% of.those students responded that they felt.we did they the learning in the pivoting.in Kogut 19 pandemic was.satisfactory and above so they felt.positively that we were able to.accommodate them during the pandemic in.their learning but we need to focus now.on the 27% of those students whether.they were in neutral we have to ensure.that we ramp up the skills we were given.a pass in in this the past spring.semester because we all were totally on.it was unexpected we were not.anticipating this but now that we know.going into the fall that Kovac 19 and.possibly for the 20 dare I say that will.remain we have had to realize that we.need to reconcile any learning as we.knew it will never be pre coded 19 so.this is what we're working on how are we.in a position to ensure that our.students and are engaged in a way that.keeps them involved and collaborative.they're in the learning exercise and.that's really critical if we think about.that equity because it's this students.and we recognize that they're so certain.population of our students who really.need face to face Barbara and they do.better face to face then remote learning.so to that and we really try to ensure.that all 16 of our institutions offer a.variety of variation of modalities with.the on face very small again dependent.upon the the size of the classroom and.the facilities and the number of.students were able to to accommodate in.learning so in addition to the dollars.we provided to students we also views.some institutional funds to ensure that.maybe students who weren't eligible for.the cares dollars receive money and.support so we've really focused quite I.think um attentively to our students.needs and equally as importantly.faculty faculty are absolutely essential.in ensuring that we're able to enhance.the quality of learning to our students.that are offered in our CSU system I.think that almost I don't have any.slides honestly I can't I known you know.Carrie I got thee the notice there is.somewhat in the last few weeks here.having known we needed PowerCLI reports.there okay okay so the next agency I'm.not sure that they are here we only see.officer early childhood or Department of.Social Services and that would be all.the agencies and I believe unless I.missed one did I miss anyone all right.they're just sure that they have.homework to do because we are all in.this together and we're going to make.sure that we get their reports and.recommendations as well so now we're.going to is we are gonna be focusing on.any cross agency collaborations that we.can identify and so what we'll do is why.don't we start with Commissioner Cardona.and then if anyone else would like to.chinam we can we can do that.commissioner Thank You governor as we.heard in the last series of comments.there is a lot of overlap there is a lot.of shared goals there are a lot of.shared goals and this is a perfect.conversation this is a perfect time to.really say how could we solidify shared.goals to turn them into you know.strategies that that are seamless now.right between our agencies and how do we.identify.within our agency that worked as part of.somebody's core work and not a you know.not a one-time program but somebody that.the collaboration continues one of the.areas that was brought up earlier was.our efforts to work not only within the.schoolhouse strategies but outside the.schoolhouse strategies and idea I feel.that um when it comes to housing and.housing opportunities and housing.patterns there's a lot of room for for.interagency collaboration so I'm on two.fronts number one how do we provide.opportunities for students to have.access to different you know different.places throughout Connecticut but also.how do we utilize the housing.department's ability to share.opportunities for teachers who want to.live in the community where they're.teaching an opportunity to do that in a.way that might be incentivized because.we know that when teachers live in the.communities where their students live or.in that area there's a greater.likelihood that they're able to connect.from a and cultural what I mean by the.community cultural level and understand.what's happening in that community and I.think it's helpful not to mention as we.look to diversify our teaching and.professional staff having a housing.incentive available or pre-service.teachers that want to get into the.profession when it comes to Connecticut.our ability to do that as the strategy.would only be enhanced by anything that.the housing department can can offer or.can communicate with us so you know.we're trying to see how we can scale.that up to provide options for teachers.that are interested in moving into.Connecticut or moving into communities.where they teach and that's one of the.strategies that I wanted to just kind of.speak a little bit more specifically to.lieutenant governor thank.you so much commissioner and you know.I'll just say from housing perspective.and a family need perspective housing is.such a determinant for success in.education and I've heard a commissioner.Durante speak very powerfully about how.housing is access to quality affordable.housing is a key determinant in keeping.families together so I think that.connection is extremely powerful and the.other thing I think with two other.things that I think are very powerful is.giving families support they need is.such a key indicator of educational.success and if families have access to.affordable housing and can pay their.utility bills and have the food they.need to keep their their kids and their.families healthy that's really important.and you know my goal in this would be.let's put with respect put DCF out of.business put the juvenile section of our.judicial department out of business so.that you know in the future some of us.don't need to be on these kinds of of.calls so you know I I have been.interested to hear all these great.things I think internet access is key as.I gone around the state and visited.grab-and-go meal sites and and talked to.educators access to the Internet is just.so important and key you know in the New.London area we've had you too.companies that were actually installing.hot spots in neighborhoods and that's a.fix but that's not that's a quick fix in.some areas but it's not it's not the.ultimate answer so that's something that.we really need to focus on and I know.that this is something that OPM talked.about but I've had librarians tell me.they have kids sitting in the parking.lot with their phones or their or their.laptops so they could do their homework.and this happens not just in Hartford.where we know it's an issue especially.in the north end but it happens in.places like Colchester where people come.to the library to sit outside so they.can have Wi-Fi and that's just that's.just not acceptable.so you know internet access family.support is really important because.whatever we can do to support families.on so many of these fronts will keep our.kids healthy and engaged and out of.trouble and getting them prepared for a.successful productive life and the only.other thing that I wanted to mention.because I heard about how telehealth was.you know going well for families and.families were taking advantage of that.and I guess my question for the.Department of Public Health is.telehealth is great but to hear that 60%.of the kids miss their vaccinations is.extremely concerning and I'm hopeful.that maybe I'm a little optimistic but.by the fall we'll have kovin.vaccinations or maybe by the winter and.so how do we make sure that we get kids.up to date with their vaccinations so we.don't have many.pandemics of childhood diseases which.shouldn't exist anymore so food for.thought and public health if you want to.chime in on that yes hi um this is.Christine so I'm not in the immunization.program but I can certainly get any.information I can from them on what they.are doing to help catch up and keep kids.on track with their vaccine schedules.okay so anyone else want to chime in on.the cross collaboration between.departments or month.this is Doug Casey I just I want to.reiterate I think what Commissioner.Cardona already said which is there's a.lot of really good just collaboration.taking place now and I think.underscoring that one of the key.concerns has been access to learning.through human beings and through.materials and technology is a key.component of that and so I would say.that just a word of encouragement for.all of us that is it is a comes down to.a local concern availability you know.what what can you use in a certain town.or even in a certain region really comes.down to those local partnerships I think.all of us have worked on the local level.as well to encourage those regional.local partnerships and I think that.process will continue because things are.very different in the North West Hills.than they are say in our urban areas.different sets of challenges but there.is no one-size-fits-all to some of these.challenges so you know when it looks to.solving those digital divide in.providing equitable access continuing to.work across agencies and continuing to.work with local partners is going to.continue to be key and I think that is a.good segue into next steps and it's also.a good segue into the the long-term.recovery committees and long term.recovery is something that is going to.cover every municipality and it's going.to cover economic all things economic.but the governor and I have asked all of.these economic recovery committees which.are going to work in a regional way to.address some of the inequities that.we've been.talking about whether they are with.respect to healthcare or with respect to.educational opportunity and internet.access because this is the only way that.we are going to address structural.racism and we've also asked committees.to take all of this into consideration.as they are in the process of forming.their diverse community and regional.boards so this is something that you.know we're asking all of these economic.recovery committees to look at so let us.talk about deliverables and next steps.so the first is for your agency we're.going to ask each agency to provide a.written report outlining the work that.you've been doing in support of this.council as you've discussed today as.well as anything else you decide you.would like to offer and you can see what.we like on this agency to liberal.deliverable slide that you can view.right now and your report should include.not only your individual agency.assessments but any cross agency.collaboration that we've talked about or.that you may be doing already because I.know several of you have talked about.the collaboration that you're already.doing so make sure that you discuss that.and you know we wouldn't be an education.committee if we didn't have homework so.reports are to be delivered to you.deputy commissioner.Tucker and my general counsel Sheree.Phoenix sharp by Friday by Friday July.31st and the 2020 legislative report and.in the short-term all of you should have.received a draft of this annual report.to the legislature and our council.activity and we've noted that most of.2019 was spent transitioning in our.administration and putting all of you in.the roles that you are in and that we.also offer that the State Department of.Education update on chronic absenteeism.and note our meetings so far this year.so please indicate if you have any.comments or suggestions on the report if.anybody has anything to suggest at this.time we'll take any comments anybody.have any comments or suggestions and so.if we do not have any at this moment.what I'm going to suggest is that people.take some time if you have not reviewed.the draft after this meeting and you can.provide either Deputy Commissioner.Russell Tucker or Sheree Phoenix sharp.within any commentary or additional.suggestions by 5:00 p.m. Friday of this.week we hope to submit the report to the.legislature by next Tuesday and as we.close out we anticipate that we will.have.meetings in September and December of.this year and that is 2020 and we will.be following up with you after you've.submitted your Chile reports and in the.meantime please reach out to either.Deputy Commissioner Russell Tucker and.council Phoenix sharp if anybody has any.questions okay and I'll also just say.that both Deputy Commissioner Russell.Tucker and my general counsel Sheree.Phoenix sharp keep people on task.so if you do not have what you need to.have done by the 31st they will make.sure.
