ELL students per teacher

There were 381 English-language learner students and 26 teachers specially trained to work with this population in Connecticut Technical High School System, according to data from 2016-17. Here's how that student-teacher ratio compares with similar districts and the statewide average.

Those 26 educators included 0 bilingual teacher(s) and 26 TESOL teacher(s).

TESOL and bilingual teachers differ in instructional practice. TESOL is english-only and teachers are trained to use visuals and other supports to help English learners. Bilingual teachers know two languages, and use both of them to teach and translate materials for students.

Primary languages spoken

Schools with at least 20 students who speak the same primary language are required to offer programs to those students in their native language. There are many students who speak primary languages other than English, but in a given school do not reach that 20-student threshold. Spanish is the most commonly spoken non-English primary language.

High-need students

Students from low-income families qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Income thresholds for the program vary based on family size. According to 2016-17 guidelines, a family of three with a gross income of just over $26,200 would qualify for free lunch, and a family of three with an income of around $37,200 would qualify for reduced-price meals.

School grade: Zero-to-100 score

Each year, the state grades every school. The state’s grading system called "NextGen" is based on more than a dozen different measures, including how many students are chronically absent, enrolled in arts and Advanced Placement college-prep courses and graduate from high school. The largest weight is given to test scores.

Smarter Balanced testing

The Smarter Balanced test replaced CAPT and CMT testing for measuring student performance. It's aligned with the Common Core curriculum. High school juniors in 2015-16 began taking the SAT in lieu of this test.

Why is some data missing?

Data might be missing for a number of reasons: It might not exist; or it might be suppressed for privacy reasons because it represents a very small group of students, for instance. Here are more details on why some school profiles don't have as much data as others.
