NPS & BOE Receive CABE Board of Distinction Award
The Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) has named Norwalk Public Schools and the Norwalk Board of Education recipients of the 2023 CABE Board of Distinction Award.
The program, which was created in 1998, awards boards of education and superintendents “which exhibit the most effective leadership and are characterized by their ability to work together as teams. The CABE Board Recognition Awards are designed to recognize Boards which work effectively in this manner.”
The Board of Distinction Award is the highest honor that CABE presents to state boards. The Norwalk BOE will be recognized at the 2023 CABE/CAPPS Convention on Nov. 18.
“This is an incredible honor to receive from CABE and shows the tremendous dedication that our Board of Education has given to our district, our families and especially our scholars. I commend our board, led by the tireless efforts of Chairwoman Diana Carpio, for achieving this recognition for their outstanding work,” said Norwalk Superintendent of Schools Dr. Alexandra Estrella. “I am excited everyday at the opportunity to partner with the board to provide our scholars with the most equitable and in-depth educational experience possible.”
