Stop what you are doing and send an e-mail immediately

SETDA has just alerted us that the Appropriations Subcommittee for Labor HHS & Education is scheduled to mark-up the Labor HHS and Education appropriations bill today (June 7th) at 2:00 pm ET. If you can drop a quick email to Letty Mederos in Rosa DeLauro’s office, it would be fresh in her mind today during the mark-up. Rosa is a key member on the Appropriations Committee, your time today could benefit students and teachers in all states!

Dear Representative DeLauro,

I am writing to share with you the significant impact Title II, Part D – the Enhancing Education through Technology (EETT) – program is having on teachers and students in Connecticut. Teachers have received significant professional development to help them change how they teach math, reading, and science through this program, and utilizing technology is helping Connecticut ensure that our students are competitive in the 21st Century global economy.

optional...add some information about the impact of EETT on your district

Please let me know if you have any other questions or would like to visit a school to see EETT in action.

Thanks so much for your support,

Send your e-mail to Letty Mederos
