The Ridgefield Board of Education (BOE) is in the process of adopting a new Mission Statement and Vision of the Graduate for the Ridgefield public school system. One of the key commitments is academic, social and emotional growth for all students. This growth is the centerpiece of our approach to ensuring that all children are cared for in our schools and prepared for life, learning and career.
Concurrently, the state of Connecticut Next Generation Accountability Index (NGAI) is a new state framework based on 12 indicators. In addition to measuring academic achievement, the new system also focuses on student growth over time, providing a more holistic, accurate picture of student performance than prior frameworks.
