Committee Members Join Students and Educators at Annual MASC Event
Everett was well represented at this year’s Day on the Hill event, the Massachusetts Association of School Committee’s legislative advocacy day. School Committee members Frank Parker and Marcony Almeida Barros led a contingent of students and educators in advancing the message of the value of public education and ensure that legislators and other key decision/policy makers understand the issues and challenges that you confront and that they can support.
As part of the program, Everett High School culinary arts students joined their peers from around the state in preparing the gourmet lunch that was served inside the historic Massachusetts State House.
The full day of programming, which took place on Wednesday, May 1, allows school committee members, superintendents, and student leaders the chance to convene at the State House and meet with the executive and legislative leadership as well as local senators and representatives.
Critical issues for Massachusetts public schools will be discussed with leading education policy makers. Join MASC for breakfast and the program at the Masonic Lodge and invite your legislators to join you at the State House for the buffet lunch catered by MA vocational students.The Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC) is a member-driven association whose mission is to support Massachusetts school leaders in their increasingly complex governance role. MASC offers a wide range of programs and services, including professional development workshops, school policy development and Salerts and analysis of new education legislation, education and school advocacy support, and also acts as an information clearinghouse. Through these and other services and resources, the Association provides important guidance and expertise to its members. Additionally, MASC serves to communicate the school committee perspective to government leadership, media, state and federal administrative agencies and other associations related to K-12 education and Massachusetts public schools.
