CLIC


Welcome to the Center for Leadership and Innovations CONNECTIONS (CLIC) page! CLIC is designed to be a “yellow page” of best practices and programs in Connecticut schools. We hope this will be your go-to resource if you are thinking about starting a new program in your school and would like to hear from colleagues who have implemented it in theirs.

Check out our current listing of programs. If one is of interest to you, contact the name listed to hear details, ask questions about the pros and cons or set up a visit. Program categories will continue to expand and we encourage you to let us know if you have a program you’d be willing to share. Please also let us know if there is a program not listed in which you have an interest. We will ask our members to respond to your request.

Click here to submit a program to share and/or inquire about one of interest to you.

IMPORTANT: These programs have not been formally vetted by CAS but are considered best practices by respected colleagues.
