A Gateway to Connecticut's Success: Leading Schools Into the Future
A Gateway to Connecticut's Success: Leading Schools Into the Future

Hello Everyone!

As you know we’ve been working on the Portrait of the Graduate for the last few years and believe the next step in our journey is to build on this work as we respond to the governor’s commitment to workforce development, economic growth, and equity and opportunity for all students.

We have partnered with Connie Kamm of Kamm Solutions to develop a professional learning series that will provide future-focused educators with rich resources, thoughtful dialogue, and differentiated support as they prepare to meet future demands. Connie is both a national and international expert on preparing students to thrive in a world of exponential change and these sessions promise to be highly interactive, informative, and provide significant insight on teaching, learning, and leading.

I encourage you to bring a team of people from your district who will have the greatest impact on changing practice and planning for the future. Please see the attachment for more session details and registration information.

Hope to see you there!

Ruling Our eXperiences, Inc. (ROX)

Ruling Our eXperiences, Inc. (ROX) is the national leader on research, education and programming for girls. Headquartered in Columbus, OH, the mission of ROX is to create generations of confident girls who are in control of their own relationships, experiences, decisions and futures. This brief 1 minute, 30 second video provides a quick overview about our work at ROX

At ROX, we train and license school counselors, social workers and licensed educators to deliver a co-curricular 20-week evidence-based empowerment program in schools with girls in grades 5-12.  Through our research with nearly 11,000 girls nationwide, we know that adolescent girls are facing significant confidence, relationship, safety and aspirational challenges. Check out this infographic-style video which highlights the major findings of the country’s largest research study on girls, The Girls’ Index, published by ROX in Oct. 2017. 

The ROX Program for Girls addresses the areas of a girl’s life where she has the potential to be held back by restrictive messages and we equip her with concrete and evidence-based skills to navigate these challenges more effectively. We currently partner with more than 200 schools in 14 different states and this academic year, nearly 3,700 girls had the opportunity to participate in the ROX program at her school. This fall, we are expanding our work to the New England area and invite you to learn more about ROX and our research at one of two data-sharing breakfast events in Boston. The first will be held on Thursday, June 27 at EY’s downtown Boston office and the second will be held on Friday, June 28 at the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation office. We invite you to extend the invitation to your colleagues near the Boston area.

For questions about ROX or to schedule time to learn more about how to bring the ROX program to your school, please contact Director of Operations, Lauren Hancock, at or 614-488-8080; ext. 5.
