It is with pleasure that we announce Rebecca Gagnon’s appointment to the ASCD Legislative Committee. Rebecca currently is a NHASCD Board Member and assistant principal at the Hopkinton Middle/High School. From 2015 through 2017, she was president of NHASCD.
The ASCD Legislative Committee is made up of a diverse cross section of ASCD members from the entire spectrum of K-12 education and whose main role is to define good education practices for policymakers. The committee identifies policies that will support innovation and effective practice in districts and schools across the country.
In addition, the committee also determines ASCD’s Legislative Agenda. The agenda sets ASCD’s policy priorities for the year ahead and directs ASCD’s advocacy efforts around important federal and state education legislations.
