NEW HAVEN, CT (November 30, 2016) –-  New Haven Public Schools has teamed up with the NAACP,  to host a 2-day symposium with Historically Black Colleges and Universities to strategically recruit effective teachers and administrators of color to serve in the District’s 47 schools.

District members and NAACP leaders are set to host representatives from nearly 30 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with the intention of discussing the importance of Minority Teacher Recruitment and the potential of creating a teacher pipeline to New Haven Public Schools from HBCU’s throughout the country.

During the day, HBCU Deans of Education
 will participate in several workshops facilitated by representatives of the Connecticut State Department of Education. The workshops will include topics on principal engagement, preparing teachers from HBCUs, teaching and learning in Connecticut, and the Connecticut teacher certification process.
