The State of Black CT Alliance launched a new and innovative initiative
of the State of Black CT Alliance (SBCTA). The Community Empowerment
Collaborative, featuring SBCTA’s 3K Curriculum: Know Your Child, Know Your
School, Know Your Community©2010 was unveiled on Wednesday, July 14, 2010,
8:30-12:00 noon at Central State Connecticut University in the Constitution
Room, Memorial Hall, 1615 Stanley St. New Britain, CT 06051.

SBCTA in conjunction with Dr. Marlon James of the NEAG School of Education at
the University of Connecticut delivered a thoughtful and progressive series
of collaborative experiences designed to build essential partnerships for
effective schools.

SBCTA supports the Connecticut Department of Education’s (CSDE) and US
Department of Education commitments to help turn around low-performing schools
within priority school districts thus ensuring each student graduates high
school, college- and career- ready.

SBCTA builds on a critical prerequisite for achieving child and adult success.
The inclusion of family voices which builds on the groundwork that Connecticut
has laid across state departments and grassroots alliances for effective family
advocacy, and aligns itself with Connecticut's continued work of building family
engagement capacity at the local levels

The State of Black CT Alliance convenes a statewide network of stakeholders
committed to creating a high quality of life for Connecticut’s Black community
through accountability, policy research, community services, education and
advocacy. With increased community assistance, the SBCTA continues to support and strengthen
Connecticut’s public policy response to eliminate socio-economic inequities,
close the academic achievement gap and to ensure each student graduates high
school, college- and career- ready.
