Design Team off to a great start on our next strategic plan!

I am very pleased that so many Rhode Islanders have participated in the process of strategic planning and that the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education has selected such a qualified, committed, and diverse group of Rhode Islanders to take on this important work. Our goal is to have in place a strategic plan that is of, by, and for Rhode Islanders.
