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!

School Governance & SEL - Board of Education EI Survey - Preliminary Results (Draft – Study Still in Process)

This presentation is still preliminary as we continue to analyze the data and encourage additional leaders to participate in the survey. Since the sample size of superintendents was too small, we presented school board member results only; however, the survey link for CT superintendents remains open (see link below). If we grow our sample size of superintendents, we can compare the results with school board members, which we think would be instructive and interesting.

We appreciate your help as we work to “Make CT the First Emotionally Intelligent State”. Please feel free to contact Dr. Marc Brackett or Scott Levy with any questions.

Building a Community-Driven Portrait of a High School Graduate - RFP Opportunity

Overview of the Opportunity

A new RFP invites applications for New England communities to develop a collective vision of their graduates, a first step for designing schools with students at the center.

The Barr Foundation seeks to select up to 20 communities across New England to receive funding and technical assistance to build locally-driven portraits of their high school graduates. A portrait of a graduate articulates the community’s collective vision of what all high school students will know and be able to do. In order for all students to reach their potential, high schools must be intentionally designed to hold students to high expectations. Through the development and use of a portrait of a graduate, high schools can embrace a robust definition of student success that ensures that students are fully equipped with core academic knowledge and skills, as well as a range of other competencies that we all need to be successful in college, career, and community...
