Our Core beliefs center around the children.

Who we are

The Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents (CAPSS) is an organization that represents all of the superintendents and leaders of public schools in Connecticut.

Our mission is to lead the continuous improvement of public education for all students by advocating public policy and developing and supporting executive school leaders. In short, it is committed to making sure schools in Connecticut are all they can be for our children.

What we believe

Our children are precious. Every single one, regardless of ethnic background, economic situation, or cognitive condition, deserves an equal chance to learn at a high standard — through vibrant, flexible, standards-based public education. Sadly, this is simply not the case today in Connecticut.

CAPSSā€ˆbelieves public education must be transformed. We must integrate services to children and raise community expectations for higher learning standards. Family structure must be reinforced on an equitable and consistent basis. And, all students must be educated to be college or career ready with globally competitive skills.

With effective leadership and the help of every citizen in Connecticut, CAPSS truly believes this is possible.
