Education Committee debates mandate relief

There was a public hearing this week on a bill introduced by the legislature’s Education Committee to provide mandate relief by having a uniform regional school calendar option.  Wilton Senator Toni Boucher co-chairs the committee.


Backers of the bill say it would also eliminate the requirement that an alternative educational opportunity for expelled students be 900 hours, eliminate the superintendent requirement for certain boards of education and require only certain school employees who have direct contact with students complete training in the restraint and seclusion of students.


Danbury Representative Michael Ferguson, Redding Representative Adam Dunsby, Gail Lavielle of Wilton and Mitch Bolinsky of Newtown will also consider the measure.
