Connecticut Association of Boards of Education


Show your school district you support them by joining us and participate in a statewide initiative to send the message "I support my Connecticut public schools!" 

Why Participate?

While long-time Hartford resident and author Mark Twain said, "Out of the public schools grows the greatness of a nation" in 1900, the words still ring true in 2024.  You and your community can show support for Connecticut's public schools - the heart of our communities.  Let your support of public education be heard!

How Can I Participate?

  • Social Media Platforms - Share why you support YOUR Connecticut Public Schools! Use #ISUPPORTMYCTPUBLICSCHOOLS and tag your district.  Be sure to use the hashtag so we can collect and share the positive messages!
  • Media Messages - Write a letter or op-ed for your local paper sharing why you support your public schools.  Be sure to share your published pieces with us by emailing them to Lisa Steimer at
  • Great Things Video - Beginning now through February 23, 2024, school districts can submit videos, no longer than one minute, that capture the great things going on in their districts.  

Who Can Participate?

Anyone who supports Connecticut's public schools can participate in this initiative - Board Members, Superintendents, administrators, teachers, parents, grandparents, students, and community members.
