NECSN CONGRATULATES TWO CHARTERS LABELED SCHOOLS OF DISTINCTION BY STATE
Hartford, CT – Connecticut's State Department of Education today released Connecticut’s Next-Generation Accountability System, designed to give a more comprehensive and holistic picture of how schools and students are performing. As part of the release, they shared 2014-2015 results for public schools across the state and designated 84 Schools of Distinction, including public charter schools Achievement First Amistad Academy and Elm City College Preparatory School.
In response, Jeremiah Grace, Connecticut state director for the Northeast Charter Schools Network released the following statement:
"This is a testament to the power of school choice and the dedicated educators and students at Amistad Academy and Elm City College Prep. Charter schools are public schools, and they are working for kids across the state. We must continue to expand access to high-performing schools like Amistad Academy and Elm City College Prep, increase the number of public school options in Connecticut, and ensure that the nearly 6,000 children on waiting lists for public charter schools get access to an education that works for them."
About the Northeast Charter Schools Network: The Northeast Charter Schools Network is the membership and advocacy organization for the more than 250 public charter schools in Connecticut and New York. Its mission is to support and expand high quality charter schools.
