Connecticut RISE Network
The Connecticut RISE Network’s mission is to empower educators to achieve breakthrough results, helping all students realize and achieve their full potential.
The Connecticut RISE Network is a Connecticut-based nonprofit organization. In 2015, public school teachers, counselors, and administrators across Connecticut came together with the Dalio Foundation to launch the RISE Network. Sharing the urgent belief that we can do more to help students realize and achieve their full potential, RISE’s founding partners aspired to create a community built by educators, for educators, to advance shared goals to improve students’ college, career, and life outcomes. The idea was relatively simple—if we bring together talented and passionate educators across public school districts, then we can amplify our collective impact for students.
RISE’s aspirations are embodied in our name; as a network, we believe that through new resources, data-driven innovations, improved systems, and educator empowerment, we can help all students succeed.See more
