what is school connectedness?

School Connectedness is the belief by students that adults and peers in the school care about their 

learning as well as about them as individuals.  Students who feel connected to their school are also 

more likely to have better academic achievement, including higher grades and test scores, have 

better school attendance, and stay in school longer.  The ongoing engagement of families, 

communities, and scholars help to create a caring and supportive environment suitable for school 


The School Connectedness Program is  part of the CCPS' efforts to foster School Connectedness, Build Resilience and Improve Student Behavior. The program has five  critical features:

The  CAB Challenge Program is part of the District’s efforts to foster 

school connectedness by establishing a formal structure that will ensure 

that each scholar is connected to a Caring Adult in the Building (CAB). 

School connectedness is the belief held by students that the adults and 

peers in their schools care about their learning as well as about them as 

individuals (Center for Disease Control- CDC).  At the heart of school 

connectedness is the healthy  relationship developed 

between staff and scholars.
