Results Are In: Your Thoughts About School Reorganization in Hamden
As many of you know, the BOE is very interested in gathering input from our community members about our reorganization effort. An online tool called ThoughtExchange allowed us to collect your thoughts/ideas and let us know how you felt about other people's ideas as well. The BOE and administration are still reviewing the comments, but we've created a summary sheet with the results of our ThoughtExchange to share with the community. Additional information will also soon be available.
