GRANBY, Conn. (December 3, 2013) – The Granby Board of Education was presented with the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) Level Two Leadership Award during the annual CABE / CAPSS (Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents) Convention held at the Mystic Marriott on Friday, November 15 – Saturday, November 16. Accepting the award on behalf of the district were Superintendent Alan Addley and Granby Board of Education Chair Cal Hemingway.

CABE believes that Boards of Education and Superintendents which exhibit the most effective leadership are characterized by their ability to work together as “teams.” The CABE Board Recognition Awards are designed to recognize Boards which work effectively in this manner. In order to appropriately recognize those Boards which are truly exemplary, CABE has now established a second level of awards, the Board of Distinction Award. Only Boards which have achieved Level One distinction at least twice in the prior four years are eligible to receive the Board of Distinction Award. Boards must achieve at least two Level Two items in each Level Two category to receive this award.

The Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) serves local and regional school districts in Connecticut and is dedicated to improving the quality of education throughout the state and the nation. CABE's membership includes 150 school districts representing 90% of the state's public school population. CABE is a leading advocate for public education at the State Capitol and in Washington D. C., and offers many types of support services to local boards of education including the Board Member Academy, a continuing education program for local board of education members. 

The Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents (CAPSS) is a statewide nonprofit educational administration organization whose membership includes Connecticut public school superintendents, assistant superintendents, central office administrative personnel, state department of education officials, and college and university professors. It provides educational and administrative leadership on a state and national level; it provides personal support services for its members; it holds statewide conferences of interest to the educational community; and it is a strong voice and staunch advocate of quality public school education.

this to a school system who's superintendent and just let go high school principal bury an educators racist comments to a high school student and leave the student without an apology, nothing. Now that's leadership!

So with the Core education curriculum being pushed by the Socialists in Washington and that nonsense being pushed by the CT BOE and our schools just rubber stamping the CORE and State requirements, the quest that begs it self is: Why do we need a local BOE any more? Really if we are going to surrender our curriculum to State and Federal boards that would negate the need for a local board. Or how about this idea: We totally ignore that Fed's and most of the crap coming from the state and go our own way. No then we would not receive any money from the state and federal governments. What a conundrum. Well Granby BOE, Congrats for what I don't know...
