Success for All: Ensuring Academic Outcomes for Unique Student Populations in Hartford Public Schools

Reads and Resources

In this publication, the Educators for Excellence (E4E)-Connecticut Hartford Teacher Policy Team on Unique Student Populations presents research-based recommendations for improving academic outcomes for Hartford’s English language learners and students with special needs. Historically, these under-served student groups have performed well below their peers on standardized tests. The product of 150 focus groups, school visits, 180 surveys, and numerous individual conversations with educators and stakeholders, the report presents recommendations that are organized into four categories: (1) individualization, (2) collaboration, (3) parent empowerment, and (4) accountability.
