ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

Each local and regional board of education must establish a written policy concerning weighted grading for honors and AP classes and inform students and parents about this policy. Community colleges are authorized to give advanced standing to high school students who demonstrate sufficient scholastic ability and who are approved by their high school principal or a designated representative. With respect to dual/concurrent enrollment, Connecticut statute states that coursework completed at an accredited higher education institution may be used toward meeting the high school graduation requirement. The Connecticut Community Colleges Board of Trustees authorizes the establishment of community college and high school partnerships and sets a number of guidelines for the admission of high school students to community college classes. These include the recommendation of a program coordinator or principal and a minimum of an 80 percent scholastic average, although this is flexible with a principal's recommendation. The college must provide participating high school students with academic advisement and other supportive services and must also pay students' tuition fees. Connecticut has also established through statute a statewide advisory committee to recommend to the state board of education how alternative technical training models, such as Tech-Prep, can be expanded for students in grades 11 and 12.

ADULT LEARNERS

Adult Education programs are free to Connecticut residents aged 16 and older who are no longer enrolled in a public school. Instructional programs include basic literacy skills, English language acquisition, citizenship and secondary school completion including preparation for the high school equivalency exam (GED). Connecticut policy calls for a program of adult education in each local school district. Policy instructs districts to award adult students credit hours for experiential learning, previous credits, prior learning competencies, and independent study programs. The state issues grants to local districts to conduct these programs, which are combined with federal grants. The Adult Literacy Leadership Board was created in 2009 by state statute, Conn. Gen. Stat. 31-11bb. And in 2012, the Planning Commission for Higher Education was developed to ensure the implementation by 2015 of a strategic master plan for higher education, including Adult Education Programs, in Connecticut.

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

Transfer agreements in Connecticut exist at the system level between the Community-Technical College (CTC) System and the Connecticut State University (CSU) System as well as between the CTC System and the University of Connecticut (UConn). The Transfer Compact Agreement between the CSU System and the Connecticut Community College System is for students who identify early in their career at a two-year institution that they wish to earn a bachelor's degree at one of the four CSU campuses after completing an associate's degree. Students participating in this program receive guaranteed admission into the 4-year university, acceptance of 60 credits of which a minimum of 31 will count toward general education requirements, and joint academic advising. The Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP) is for students who earn a 3.0 and complete an associate's degree in a Liberal Arts transfer program at one of Connecticut's community colleges and plan to transfer to UConn. Students must transfer into a major offered by UConn's College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the College of Agriculture & Natural Resources, or the School of Business. For both of these agreements, transfer is envisioned as a movement from the two-year institution to the four-year institution, not from the four-year institution to the two-year institution.

DATA AND ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS

The Connecticut State Department of Education has a data reporting site, Connecticut Education Data and Reporting (CEDaR), which provides comprehensive dataset for performance analysis. The Department also provides professional development in Data Driven Decision Making and Data Teams to help teachers improve instruction. The Connecticut Department of Higher Education was directed by the legislature to develop performance and accountability measures that are reported to the General Assembly annually that assess the institutional progress made by each public college and university in enhancing student learning and promoting academic excellence, creating partnerships with the K-12 system to improve teaching and learning at all levels, ensuring access to and affordability of higher education, promoting economic development, responding to societal needs, and ensuring the efficient use of resources. These annual reports include updated baseline and peer comparison data, performance improvement targets for each measure, and other pertinent information as required. (Last updated 2008)

EARLY OUTREACH PROGRAMS

At the state level, Connecticut does not have a state-level pre-college outreach policy with goals and strategies nor a systematic way to identify and target students, collect student data across segments, allocate funds, evaluate programs, and report data. Connecticut does not have many pre-college outreach-related statutes. The state's General Statutes stipulate that the Department of Higher Education may administer a Help and Opportunity to Pursue Education (HOPE) grant to assist organizations that encourage and provide tutoring for eligible students (economically disadvantaged residents) to enroll in, and graduate from, a postsecondary institution. The state also has relevant programs that are not in statute. GEAR UP is active in 24 schools. The Connecticut Talent Assistance Cooperative facilitates the entry and/or re-entry of eligible Connecticut residents into postsecondary educational programs. Specific program activities include: career and academic counseling and guidance, college tutorial services, and collection and dissemination of financial aid information.

FINANCE

The Board of Governors of Higher Education reviews and recommends changes in tuition and fees at the constituent units (institutions) of the state system of higher education, but ultimately the constituent units have a great deal of autonomy. Legislative intent is that the constituent units apply uniform rules in determining whether students shall be classified as in-state or out-of-state students for tuition purposes. The Board of Trustees of the Community-Technical Colleges determines and adopts tuition and fees schedules at the regional community-technical colleges, and may make refunds to the same. The Board of Governors waives tuition for dependent children of those declared missing in action, killed in the line of duty, or prisoner of war; veterans who served in specific wars; students enrolled in the Connecticut Police Academy; active members of the Connecticut Army or Air National Guard; and seniors over 62 years of age.

RESIDENCY

Connecticut's residency policies are set in the legislature. In-state tuition benefits are granted to those who are domiciled in state for at least one continuous year. If a dependent, the student's domicile is that of the parent(s). Upon moving to Connecticut, an emancipated person employed full-time may apply for in-state classification for his or her spouse and unemancipated children after six consecutive months of residency. The legislature extends in-state tuition benefits to members of the armed forces and their dependents. The legislation allows for institutions or their governing boards to establish quotas, admissions standards, readmission standards, or other terms and requirements for out-of-state students. Tuition will be prorated in the case of a student enrolled in less than 75 percent of the credit hours defined as a full-time load by each institution. The Boards of Trustees of the Community-Technical Colleges, the Connecticut State University System and The University of Connecticut will fix tuition fees for nonresident students who are enrolled in institutions under the jurisdiction of said boards through the New England Regional Student Program of no less than the tuition rate charted of resident students plus fifty percent of that rate.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

Connecticut has no state-level agency to administer financial aid programs, but its institutions of higher education administer student financial aid from an array of sources such as the federal and state government, local banks and civic organizations. The state has several need-based programs, including the Capitol Scholarship, for students who demonstrate financial need and rank in the upper 20 percent of their high school class; the Connecticut Aid for Public Colleges, for students who demonstrate financial need; CONNTAC, for low-income individuals whose parents (mother or father) have not earned a Bachelor's degree and the Independent College Student Grant Program, for students with need who attend independent colleges and universities. The state has a grant program that includes loan reimbursement for minority students enrolled in teacher education programs. For the 2005-2006 academic year, Connecticut awarded 39,038 million for need-based aid and 343,000 for non-need-based aid. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

TEACHING QUALITY

Since its initial investments in 1986 with the Education Enhancement Act, Connecticut has received national attention for its student achievement growth and innovative approaches to teaching quality. While substantial investments in teacher salaries keep it perennially ranked among the top states, the state's well-supported systemic approach - from teacher preparation to professional development-aligned around student and teacher standards makes it unique. Perhaps most noteworthy was its Beginning Educator Support and Training (BEST) program, where new teachers receive school-based support by mentors or a support team, and in their second year they must create a highly structured portfolio. As of July 1, 2009, however, new teachers will no longer be required to participate in the BEST program and funding for the program is eliminated. Instead, a 21-member task force will develop a new mentor assistance program to replace the BEST program starting in the 2009-10 school year and recommend transition procedures between the old and new programs.
