Alcott Elementary School Earns Exemplary School Climate Status


The Connecticut Association of Schools is proud to announce that Alcott Elementary School has been certified for Exemplary School Climate Recognition. Alcott Elementary School joins a handful of Connecticut schools also holding the designation.


The administration and faculty at Alcott Elementary School completed a rigorous self-assessment examining 27 areas of school practice such as curriculum, integration, collaborative decision making, parent and/or community involvement, and flexible grouping and scheduling. An evaluation team from the Connecticut Association of Schools then visited the school to verify and validate the assessment.


Alcott Elementary School is being awarded a framed CAS certificate, a three-year exemplary school climate designation, and recognition on the CAS website. As a service to other schools wishing to improve their climate practices, award winners welcome inquiries and visitors.
