Strategies to Make the Vision a Reality

Current Status

In May of 2013, the state legislature passed Connecticut’s Act for Unleashing Innovation in Connecticut Schools.13  This bill states that local boards of education may grant a high school diploma through a “demonstration of mastery based on competency and performance standards, in accordance with guidelines adopted by the State Board of Education.”14

Currently, there are 29 secondary schools and 7 school districts in the process of transforming their education system to be based on a philosophy of personalized learning.
