Sixty-three schools across the state have received failing grades on a new report card project released Thursday by the Connecticut Coalition for Achievement Now.
Failing schools were located in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Britain, New Haven, Norwich, Stamford, Waterbury and one in Windham. None of the failing schools are located in Litchfield County.
ConnCAN graded 944 public schools, including charter and magnet schools, across the state based on the Connecticut School Performance Index for 2013 and student enrollment data and created a searchable database and map to help the public easily access information on how the local schools are doing. The database shows details on reading, writing and math and whether the school improved over the 2012 scores. You can also compare up to four schools with each other.
