Governor and Education Commissioner to Host Live Webcast
Focus is on Local Schools, Regional Support Initiative
January 31, 2007
AUGUSTA – Governor John Baldacci and Education Commissioner Susan Gendron will participate in a live interactive video Web broadcast Friday night to discuss the Governor’s school administration consolidation plan and answer questions about how it will be implemented.
Baldacci and Gendron will present an overview of their Local Schools, Regional Support Initiative, and take questions submitted by e-mail during the program. The broadcast is scheduled from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. this Friday, Feb. 2, and can be accessed by visiting www.maine.gov/education/supportingschools/webcast.
Viewers will be given a link to view the program, and information about how to submit questions. It will be archived and available for viewing at any time within a few hours of the broadcast for those who are not able to tune in live. Those with slower internet connections should still receive full audio and a choppy video stream.
The LSRS Initiative aims to shift resources from central office administration to the classroom, improving outcomes in the classroom and saving taxpayers a quarter billion dollars over the first three years.
