Sandy Hook Survivor Suing for 100 Million
A lawyer who's asking to sue Connecticut for $100 million on behalf of a 6-year-old Newtown school shooting survivor who heard violence over the school's intercom system says the potential claim is about improving school security, not money. "It's about living in a world that's safe," New Haven attorney Irving Pinsky told The Associated Press on Saturday. "The answer is about protecting the kids." Pinsky asked this week to sue the state, which has immunity against most lawsuits unless it gives a party permission to go forward with a claim. Connecticut's claims commissioner couldn't be reached for comment Saturday. Pinksy's client, whom he calls "Jill Doe" in the claim, sustained "emotional and psychological trauma and injury" on Dec. 14 after gunman Adam Lanza forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and gunned down 20 children and six adults inside in one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. The child heard "conversations, gunfire and screaming" over Sandy Hook's intercom after someone in the office apparently switched on the system, according to the claim. Pinsky said Saturday he didn't know whether his client saw anyone die. The state Board of Education, Department of Education and state education commissioner failed to protect the child "from foreseeable harm," including by failing to provide a safe school setting, the filing said. It also said the parties failed to review and carefully scrutinize annual strategic school profile reports from the local school district and Sandy Hook Elementary as well as "other submissions with respect to student safety and emergency response planning and protocol." It says the parties also failed to require the school and local Board of Education to formulate and implement an effective student safety emergency response plan. Pinsky said Saturday he didn't want to reveal more about the 6-year-old or details about her experience during the shooting because of privacy concerns.

CT 4 Walls Project Funding Request
THE CONNECTICUT "4-WALLS" PROJECT The initial concept and design of a new model project called the Connecticut "4-Walls" Project were begun in the South Bronx, New York, by its creator, Samuel Cephas, in July, 2011. Realizing that the South Bronx was far too large geographically and population-wise to implement the project, Mr. Cephas consulted with some of his Connecticut contacts about locations in that state which would be able to implement the model. It was determined that Manchester, CT would be a good location. With that decision finalized by the MC2 Board, initial contacts were begun with town and school officials, college administration, social service agencies, legislative representatives, and respective Manchester businesses and companies. The fact that this initiative is a "model" is important because once the project is well underway in Manchester, the model will be brought to other low income urban locations throughout the state where test scores of minority students, especially, are well below average and the truancy and drop-out rates are high. Such communities, among others, include Willimantic, Putnam, Norwich, New London, New Britain, Hartford, Meriden, Middletown, Waterbury, Torrington, New Haven, Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stamford, and Danbury. The most important component in this model are the local grass-roots organizations who have been dealing with focused educational issues like the achievement gap, truancy and drop-out rates for many years, and therefore choose to partner-up to stop these rapidly changing statistics, with: 1) a mission to stop the achievement gap; 2) a vision to improve individual student GPA's; and 3) a goal of ensuring high school graduation for all program participants. Public meetings, focused on the larger community, are always important as previous experience in other locations has proven. Hopefully such public meetings will assist the new partnerships to gain a complement of concerned and committed individuals willing to assist "on-the-bubble" high school students to reach post high school educational goals or gainful employment. MC2 will bring to all partnerships, in all communities, its proven record of 10+ years of success in working with inner-city students, primarily black and Hispanic, living in very difficult neighborhoods in Hartford. The MC2 curriculum, which provides tutoring, at all sessions, in the core subjects of math, reading and science, then provides additional study in such specialized areas as financial literacy, environmental science, building/sustainability, or various aspects of the arts. MC2 will also bring live "on-location" broadcast capabilities, focusing on all aspects of the program, through NETSMediaTV.com. As a partnership, MC2 knows that model projects, such as this, will succeed especially as other partners in the specialty areas join to lend their expertise, and individuals committed to providing the best in educational support are willing to assist in a variety of ways. MC2 is actively looking for other partners, so that through everyone's committed effort, the Connecticut "4-Walls" Project model will become the most successful model in New England. But we do need everyone's support. The key to any growing partnership will be "working together" toward a common goal, but in no way seeking to change, or control, or divide what each respective partner performs on its own. Any new partnership, in whatever city, will be guided by a specific "4-Walls" Advisory Board which will oversee all activities that are geared to accomplish the vision of improved student GPA's and thereby ensure high school graduation and beyond. It is this Board which will make all decisions about programming and finances. It is this Board, which along with other levels of assessment and evaluation, will perform its own assessment and evaluation of the program. The Advisory Board and its subcommittees will be staffed by volunteer members. Early work of any partnership, always to be accomplished, is locating sufficient volunteers to fully implement all aspects of the project. Volunteers can choose to assist in tutoring, in transportation, in fund-raising, or assisting with special student-focused events. A "4-Walls" PTO will be developed, so that parents or guardians of all participants will also be actively involved in various aspects of support. Every partnership holds, in its hands, great opportunities. Community-based initiatives can reap outstanding results. The "4-Walls" Project is defined as such, because its total focus is within the four town-line boundaries of each respective community - for that community's students, with that community's resources, and in partnership with many of that community's entities. Because of this base of community support, the program is offered free of charge to each student participant. We hope that you will choose to utilize this model and become active members within it.

Building Strategic Partnerships to Foster Community Engagement in Education
Recorded on February 9, 2011, this was the fifth webinar in the "Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement" (FSCE) series. Strategic community partnerships are a key component of systemic family, school, and community engagement in education. These partnerships draw on the strengths of community groups as they surround students with an array of supports to enhance learning and prepare them for the 21st century. Strategic partnerships also create a culture of communication with each other and with families and schools to ensure the services they provide meet the needs of their communities. This webinar examined practical examples of how to build successful strategic partnerships that foster community engagement, including how to select the organizations, people, and services to be included; how to structure communications to ensure ongoing collaboration; and how to build connections with families and schools. You will hear from a Promise Neighborhood grantee about the program's vision and how it is forming partnerships to support students from birth through college and career preparation, from The Children's Aid Society about why the community school model promotes strong families and successful students, and from the United Way of Lake County, Illinois about a community engagement planning process to ensure on-time high school graduation. The U.S. Department of Education's Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships will also speak about what the initiative is doing to sponsor deliberate and ongoing partnerships. Presenters include: - Moderator: Lindsay Torrico, Manager, Public Policy, United Way Worldwide - Reverend Brenda Girton-Mitchell, Director, Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, U.S. Department of Education - Jane Quinn, Director, National Center for Community Schools, The Children's Aid Society - Irasema Salcido, Founder, Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools for Public Policy, Promise Neighborhood Grantee - Helen Westmoreland, Director of Program Quality, Flamboyan Foundation - Michelle Mittler Crombie, Vice President of Community Development, United Way of Lake County, Illinois A selection of resources and links related to the webinar are located at: http://www.nationalpirc.org/engagement_webinars/archive-webinar5.html

W4 News - Strategic Operating Plan Focus on K-2 Literacy Curriculum - 11/18/2015
Community Update: Cultivating Equity and Excellence Strategic Operating Plan Focus on K-2 Literacy Curriculum HARTFORD, CT -- Superintendent Beth Schiavino-Narvaez presented her first community update on the Strategic Operating Plan 2015-2020 as Hartford Public Schools takes on the next phase of plan implementation in pursuit of equitable outcomes for all students. Dr. Narvaez shared performance equity indicator targets for 2016 and provided insights about one of the Strategies in Action: the New K-2 Literacy Curriculum, one of the district’s landmark initiatives. “Last year we focused on planning and strategies built on community input. Now we are doing what we said we were going to do. This is our pact with our families and we are going to keep our promises in a very tangible manner,” said Dr. Narvaez on Wednesday at Hartford Public Schools Central Office. Target outcomes for 2016 include reaching a 78% college acceptance rate (currently 72.5%), a 75.2% graduation rate (currently 71.5%), nearly 60% Algebra 1 proficiency by the end of ninth grade (currently 55%), and reducing suspensions by 20%. Ultimately, the plan calls for 100% college acceptance, 90% graduation, 80% Algebra 1 proficiency by the end of ninth grade and 90% reduction in suspensions by the year 2020. Improving early elementary literacy is one of Hartford Public Schools’ main goals. Research shows that children not reading at grade-level by third grade are less likely to achieve high school graduation. The new K-2 Literacy Curriculum was developed in partnership with teachers, ensuring full alignment with Connecticut Core Standards (Common Core State Standards). The curriculum features an interdisciplinary approach combining Reading, Writing, Science – Next Generation Science Standards, and Social Studies – C3 Standards (College, Career, Civic Life) designed with teacher input and participation with a focus on meeting the developmental needs of early readers. “We value the input and engagement of our amazing teachers,” said Dr. Narvaez. “This new approach will help to ensure a strong foundation for our students on their journey to college and the workplace.” The district is piloting the new curriculum framework at 15 schools led by 140 kindergarten to second grade classroom teachers responsible for laying the groundwork so that 40% of our third grade students are able to reach and supersede the 50th percentile MAP in reading by the year 2016 (currently 35.3%). K-2 Literacy Curriculum pilot schools are Annie Fisher STEM Magnet School, Early Reading Lab at Betances School, Expeditionary Learning Academy at Moylan, Milner School, Parkville Community School, Sanchez School (2014-15); Asian Studies Academy, Breakthrough Magnet School (South), Clark School, Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker, Kennelly School, Martin Luther King, Jr. School, Rawson School, R.J.

Transforming Schools Through Family, School, and Community Engagement
Recorded on April 29, 2010, this was the first webinar in the "Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement" (FSCE) series. Research over the past 30 years has shown that engaging families in their children's education increases student achievement and decreases dropout rates. Effective family engagement is not a one-time program or the choice of a good school, but rather a set of day-to-day practices, attitudes, beliefs and interactions that support learning at home, at school, afterschool, and during the summer. To ensure that the students of today are ready for the careers of tomorrow, families, schools, and community groups need to work together to promote engagement that is systemic, sustained, and integrated into school improvement efforts. Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement is a series of webinars that aims to provide opportunities for stakeholders representing national, regional, and local organizations to learn about family, school, and community engagement research, as well as best practices and innovations from the field. The first installment of the webinar series addresses the question, How can stakeholders build the capacity to transform schools through effective family, school, and community engagement? This webinar includes real-life examples of innovative family and community engagement efforts, and discusses how to successfully integrate family engagement into student learning and how to sustain engagement efforts across the cradle-to-career pathway. Presenters include: Jim Shelton, Assistant Deputy Secretary, Office of Innovation and Improvement, U.S. Department of Education; Anna Hinton, Director, Parental Options and Information, Office of Innovation and Improvement, U.S. Department of Education; Heather Weiss, Founder & Director, Harvard Family Research Project; Nina Sazer O'Donnell, Vice President, Education, United Way Worldwide; Ron Mirr, Iowa State PIRC, RM Consulting A selection of resources and links related to the webinar are located at: http://www.nationalpirc.org/engagement_webinars/archive-webinar1.html

Westfield State ICE ICE Baby 2018
The Westfield State University Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (ICE) Program's remix to celebrate 5 years of program success! The WSU ICEI Program opened it's doors in the fall of 2013 welcoming 5 students. Entering year 6, fall 2018, we will welcome 30 students We love you all to pIeCEs!!! About the Initiative: The Westfield State University ICEI (MAICEI) Program is a state-funded partnerships between local school districts and two- and four-year public colleges and universities in Massachusetts. The term “Concurrent Enrollment” means that participating students are still eligible for special education services, even though they have finished four years of high school. So, they are concurrently enrolled in college while still being eligible for special education services. Funded by the Commonwealth since 2007, the Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (MAICEI) offers grants to college-school partnerships to support eligible public high school students with intellectual disabilities, ages 18–22, to increase their academic and career success by being included in a college or university community of learners. Students with intellectual disabilities who are eligible for the program must be between the ages of: 18 to 22, have not passed MCAS, and are eligible for special education services as documented through an Individualized Education Program (IEP); or 20 to 21, have passed MCAS, but are still eligible for special education with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) because of significant functional disabilities, transition needs, etc. Evidence shows that students benefit academically and transition to young adulthood more readily when they have the opportunity to engage in all college-related activities (e.g., establishing new social networks, participating in campus-wide events, learning to use public transportation to and from campus, completing course assignments, obtaining employment) rather than staying at high school. Student participation in this grant program may be incorporated into a student’s transition program, as determined through the school district’s special education process. Student participants in MAICEI develop career-planning and employment skills, self-advocacy skills, and new life skills that will assist students in their post-secondary interests and activities. For example, students participate in: Person-centered planning College courses related to job interests Paid work and internships Independent living and independent travel For more information regarding all Massachusetts ICEI Programs follow this link: http://www.mass.edu/strategic/read_maiceipart-westfield.asp

Economics of Cybersecurity | DelftX on edX | Professional Education | Course About Video
Enroll in Economics of Cybersecurity from DelftX at https://www.edx.org/course/economics-cybersecurity-delftx-econsec101x Economics of Cybersecurity Learn how to measure the costs and assess the importance of securing your business from cyber threats. About this Course With a significant increase in high-profile data breaches and cybersecurity threats in the last couple years, it is critical for businesses to learn about the costs and investment decisions around securing their online systems. If you make decisions around IT investments in your job or are interested in learning more about securing your business, this course is for you. While many businesses think of cybersecurity as a technical problem, this course broadens that view and shows that security failures are caused as often by bad business decisions and incentive systems as by bad technical design. This course provides an introduction to the field of the economics behind cybersecurity, delivered by four leading research teams from distinguished universities around the world, including: Michel van Eeten of Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands Ross Anderson of Cambridge University in the United Kingdom Rainer Boehme of University of Münster in Germany Carlos H.Gañán of Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands Tyler Moore of Southern Methodist University in the USA It will provide you with the economic concepts, measurement approaches and data analytics to make better security decisions, while helping you to understand the forces that shape the security decisions of other businesses, products and services. This course will: Teach you to make choices on investing in your company’s cybersecurity. We discuss and apply different economic models that help determine the costs and benefits of security investments. Arm you with research to make strategic business decisions. We review empirical research into security decisions and incentives of actors. We analyze data on firms in different markets, and apply economic concepts to explain the strategies of attackers. Review policy and regulations. We discuss available economic tools to better align the incentives for cybersecurity, including better security metrics, cyber insurance/risk transfer, information sharing, and liability assignment. This course offers a broad view of the field through lectures and exercises that can apply to both early career professionals as well as senior technical managers. After finishing this course you will be able to apply economic analysis and data analytics. You will understand the role played by incentives on the adoption and effectiveness of security mechanisms, and on the design of technical, market-based, and regulatory solutions to different security threats. After successfully completing this course, you will: Position yourself as a vital subject matter expert regarding the economic drivers that influence cybersecurity and position your company to move forward and stay competitive. Engage confidently with management on opportunities and cybersecurity challenges faced by your industry; analyze emerging security threats and how these threats can be mitigated by effectively addressing real economic problems. Learn and assess the issues of investment in cybersecurity, making your company more productive, while saving time and money. Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be awarded a DelftX Professional Education Certificate. The TU Delft Extension School offers Continuing Education Units for this course. Participants of EconSec101x who successfully complete the course requirements will earn a Certificate of Completion and are eligible to receive 2.0 Continuing Education Units (2.0 CEUs).
