Superintendent of Schools Dr. Toni Jones said, "We are very proud to have six Schools of Distinction across our District. Our academic goal for our students continues to be: performing at their highest potential and continuous growth. Whether labeled technically with 'distinction' or not, each and every one of our schools has something to be proud of when you look at the mission and vision for the District and compare it to how we are developing our students across the District."

According to the CT Department of Education, NGAI "is a broad set of 12 indicators that help tell the story of how well a school is preparing its students for success in college, careers and life. The system moves beyond test scores and graduation rates and instead provides a more holistic, multifactor perspective of district and school performance and incorporates student growth over time."

About the Next Generation Accountability Index:

Connecticut's Next Generation Accountability System is a broad set of 12 indicators that help tell the story of how well a school is preparing its students for success in college, careers and life. The system moves beyond test scores and graduation rates and instead provides a more holistic, multifactor perspective of district and school performance and incorporates student growth over time. It was developed through extensive consultation with district and school leaders, Connecticut educators, state and national experts, CSDE staff, and many others. The system was conceived and developed under ESEA Flexibility and approved by the U.S. Department of Education (USED) on August 6, 2015. It was later included as part of Connecticut's state plan under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
