On April 11, State Senator Art Linares presented an official State of Connecticut citation to Lyme Consolidated School Principal James Cavalieri in honor of the school’s recent recognition as a “School of Distinction” by the Connecticut State Department of Education.

The school was recognized in the ‘Highest Overall Performance’ category meaning that the school is one of those with a School Performance Index greater than the state’s “all students” target of 88 and is performing within the top 10 percent of schools across the state.

Neviaser commented, “An honor such as this is the result of a dedicated, caring, and hardworking staff who is willing to do everything in their power to ensure the success of all of their students,” adding that Lyme Consolidated had, “… proven [it was] truly one of the best.”

Linares represents the 33rd Senate District, which, along with Lyme, encompasses Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Old Saybrook, Portland, and Westbrook.
