The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) Office of Student Supports and Organizational Effectiveness and the Performance Office partnered with the Connecticut Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (CTAHPERD) to develop the Red Ribbon PASS Program standards, eligibility requirements, and the system to recognize Red Ribbon PASS Program awardees. The CSDE will make information about the Red Ribbon PASS Program, including the list of districts receiving the recognition, available on the department’s “Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child” (WSCC) webpage. CTAHPERD will provide a Red Ribbon PASS Program banner to awardees and assist with arrangements for the recognition ceremonies.
