ConnCAN would like to thank the following individuals and organizations for their help in developing this database:
Each of the school districts for their cooperation in providing this information and sending us their contracts. Although the contracts are subject to Connecticut’s public disclosure laws, nearly every district courteously and promptly sent their contracts without such a request required.
Sandi Jacobs, Vice President of the National Council on Teacher Quality, for her support and consultation throughout the development of the Database.
Emily Cohen, District Policy Director of the National Council on Teacher Quality and leader of the TR3 (Teacher Rules, Roles, and Rights) Project (which inspired ConnCAN to undertake this work) for her assistance in providing feedback on our Database.
Thomas Mooney, partner and co-chair of the School Law Practice Group of the law firm of Shipman and Goodwin, adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut School of Law, and author of A Practical Guide to Connecticut School Law (7th ed. 2012), for his guidance on contract law and support related to Connecticut collective bargaining in education.
Jordan Sauer, former ConnCAN Research and Policy Fellow, and Michael Shulansky, interim Communications Associate, for their data and research support in compiling the information on contract provisions for the Database.
