(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont and Connecticut State Department of Education Commissioner Charlene M. Russell-Tucker today announced that Connecticut’s Learner Engagement and Attendance Program (LEAP), which was created in 2021 following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to combat student absenteeism, is featured as a national best practice in a newly released promotional video produced by the Collaborative for Student Success, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for practices and policies that improve outcomes for all students.

The video highlights the effectiveness of LEAP’s home visiting actions in reducing student absences.
