Northeast and Islands Region: A Report Identifying and Addressing the Educational Needs
US Department of Education
This report discusses the deliberations of the Northeast and Islands (NEI) Regional Advisory Committee (RAC), one of 10 RACs established by the U.S. Department of Education to solicit information about the educational needs of state and local educators, school officials, business leaders, state education agencies, parents, local communities, and others. Committee deliberations took place in Arlington, Virginia, May 23-24, 2011, and two public meetings by webinar on June 16 and June 23, 2011. This report represents the work of the NEI RAC, which includes Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. NEI RAC members developed an outreach strategy to elicit input from stakeholders via the RAC website, online surveys using Survey Monkey, personal e-mails, and one-on-one discussions. This strategy consisted of drafting personal e-mail invitations to constituent groups to take the Survey Monkey survey and/or visit the RAC website to leave open-ended comments. Each RAC member revised the e-mail invitation to tailor the message for the intended target constituency group. Appended are: (1) Northeast and Islands Regional Profile; (2) Public Comments; and (3) Online Survey Data. A glossary is included. (Contains 4 figures, 28 tables and 2 footnotes.)
