Charter Schools Best Practices Summary Reports

Summary of the Connecticut Charter Schools Best Practices

Connecticut General Statutes (C.G.S.) Section 10-66ii requires the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) to annually publish a report on best practices reported by governing councils of charter schools pursuant to subdivision (5) of subsection (b) of Section 10-66cc of the C.G.S., and distribute a copy of such report to each public school superintendent and governing council of each charter school.

The Summary of the Connecticut Charter Schools Best Practices Report provides a context for the best practices. The best practices are self-reported by the state charter schools and annually submitted to the CSDE.  The information provided represents practices and policies that charter school personnel believe to be the most innovative and effective at improving academic achievement.

We hope this publication will facilitate collaborative efforts between public school districts and state charter schools. CSDE recommends that superintendents contact those charter schools whose best practices might be applicable to the mission and goals of their school districts.
