In its 2017 regular session, the General Assembly made a number of changes in the statutes affecting public education in Connecticut. This summary is intended to give you a brief overview of some of the more significant changes that were made this year in the area of education.

Note: At the time of publication, the General Assembly had not passed a biennial budget. Upon passage of the budget, related legislation implementing the budget will likely further impact laws affecting public schools. Once this legislation is passed, we will supplement this legislative summary and distribute a comprehensive summary of laws from the regular and special sessions.
