The system must be transformed to meet future needs of students. With a new model that places the “learner” at the center of all strategy and action, CAPSS has developed a set of action-oriented recommendations that will address the complex problems we face today, transform learning, and ensure that Connecticut’s children receive the best possible education.

We’ve organized this report around major themes in transformation. Although larger themes are separate, all are interconnected. Accordingly, we visit these ideas in multiple sections of the document. Our discussion of the proposed transformation begins with Start With Early Childhood and continues through ten additional areas:

Start With Early Childhood

Raise the Bar

Make It Personal

Offer More Options and Choices

Retool Assessment and Accountability

Leverage Technology

Strengthen the Profession

Reform System Leadership and Governance

Involve Students and Parents

Continue the Transformation

Social and Emotional Learning
