Bill Cirone, Santa Barbara County’s superintendent of schools, has been re-elected chairman of the national board of trustees of the Teachers Network.

Joining Cirone as officers on the board are Jill Rosenberg Jones, vice president, Goldman Sachs; Alan Federman, controller for; and Peter Dillon, superintendent, Berkshire Hills Regional School District.

Teachers Network is a nearly 30-year-old national and international nonprofit organization that supports teachers throughout their professional lives to keep them in the classroom, foster better schools and improve student achievement.

Santa Barbara was the first county in the nation to become a Teachers Network site, starting as the Impact II program.

Teachers Network is involved in grant-making, connecting teachers, supporting new teachers, providing online networking and helping set public policy. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
