Regionalization of Schools
Regionalization of schools in Connecticut is an issue that has been raised in the past few years. Both Sara and Mike opposed the bills proposed in 2019, and Sara testified in front of the Education Committee of Connecticut's General Assembly in opposition to the forced regionalization of schools. While there is always a desire to look for efficiencies in the education budget, doing so at the expense of student outcomes is not acceptable. There is currently no good research or data that supports regionalization of Darien's schools.
