The Department is pleased to convene
Teacher and Principal Advisory Cabinets
each year as a way to recognize excellent educators, elevate teacher and principal voices at the state level, and provide opportunities for leadership. Cabinet members attend five meetings a year and provide insights and feedback about current policies and inform the development of new policies and resources. The Department seeks input from a diverse group of teachers and principals who represent urban, suburban, and rural districts and reflect the demographics of Massachusetts' students. To ensure a wide range of input, the Department convenes East and Central/West branches of each cabinet.
The Principal Advisory Cabinets are open to all school-level administrators, including principals, assistant principals, department chairs, and charter school leaders. The Teacher Advisory Cabinets are open to all educators who work with students across grade levels and content areas, including specialists, coaches, and specialized instructional support personnel.
