The Connecticut RISE Network team includes former school administrators, former teachers and counselors, data and technology specialists, and nonprofit leaders who work hand-in-hand to support educators and school communities.

We hold ourselves equally accountable for student outcomes, and we learn as much from our partners as we hope they do from our staff.
