Region 15 Advisory Committee on Global Citizenship and Character

The committee, formed during the 2017-18 school year, is a representative group of district administrators, teachers, students, and parents and includes facilitators from Cooperative Educational Services.

The purpose of the Region 15 Advisory Committee on Global Citizenship and Character is to identify how Region 15 can increasingly provide for an effective and more deliberate global-citizenship and character education.  A global citizenship and character education recognizes that our world is increasingly interdependent, includes diverse identities and cultures, and our choices may impact individuals and communities locally, nationally and internationally.

Anyone requesting more information and/or is interested in participating on this committee may contact Dr. Carrie Chiappetta, Assistant Superintendent at (203) 758-8259 x 114.
