Stonington Public Schools is proud to announce the identification of West Broad Street School as a School of Distinction for Highest Performing Subgroup and Deans Mill School as a School of Distinction for Highest Performing Overall and Highest Performing Subgroup. As the K-2 sister to West Broad Street School, West Vine Street School shares in the recognition of West Broad Street School.

A March 2, 2016 press release from the Connecticut State Department of Education announced the launch of its “next generation accountability system designed to provide more holistic picture of school performance”.

“The Next Generation Accountability System is designed to help Connecticut measure school and district success toward the goal of providing every student a quality education that prepares him or her for success down the road. Each school receives a score calculated using a formula that incorporates the accountability system indicators” (these indicators measure more than test scores and graduation rates) (March 2, 2016 press release).

Within this new accountability system, the Connecticut State Department of Education has recognized 84 Schools of Distinction based on 2014-15 data according to the following criteria:

Highest Performing Overall: These are schools in the top 10% with respect to the Accountability Index.

Highest Performing Subgroup: These are schools in the top 10% of points earned for the High Special Needs subgroup (Free or Reduced Price Lunch, English language learners and students with special education needs) in academic achievement indicator.

We are very proud of the accomplishments of our elementary staff, students, administration, and families. We celebrate their recognition as Schools of Distinction (particularly special for West Broad Street School, as it is their first academic recognition). Thank you to all for the commitment and hard work it takes to ensure that our students learn and grow. We believe in you!
