Continue the Transformation


Action Steps

  • The 2015 Connecticut Statute “Unleashing Innovation in Connecticut Schools” will be revised to expand flexibility in several areas, including certification and definitions of course credit.
  • The state and districts will streamline mechanisms for teachers and administrators to propose and receive approval for innovative practices.
  • The state and districts will set aside Research & Development funds to support innovation in education, to promote teachers in ongoing inquiry into best practices, and to evaluate the effectiveness of current programs.
  •  In order to reflect how to improve teaching and learning, educators need regularly scheduled time to examine their practice with the support of colleagues.

Statues and regulations should focus on the outcomes of education, not restrict the processes for supporting student learning. Until that transition, the state needs a process to review outdated regulations and should include a sunset provision in new regulations.
