SDE: Commissioner's Network

{Commissioner}

The Commissionerís Network is a commitment between local stakeholders and the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) to dramatically improve student achievement in up to 25 schools.  To that end, the Network offers new resources and authorities to empower teachers and school leaders to implement research-based strategies in schools selected by the Commissioner of Education to participate in the Network for a period of three to five years.  Network schools remain part of their local school districts, but the districts and the CSDE secure school-level flexibility and autonomy for the schools in exchange for heightened accountability.  At present, there are 11 schools participating in the Network.
