Connecticut’s SS/HS diffusion initiative: 1) promotes the physical and emotional well-being of youth; 2) prevents youth violence and substance use; and 3) creates safe and respectful school climates. The project supports SS/HS implementation in three local school districts that represent 7% of the state’s public school population. Students in SS/HS districts face significant disparities across indicators such as poverty levels, academic achievement, chronic absenteeism, suspensions, expulsions and arrests.
