Dinner at John C. Daniels School means...

Keeping a promise

When John C. Daniels School recently held a dinner to share the New Haven Promise program with parents, they had "a great turnout," officials said in a statement.

There were more than 250 parents and guardians in attendance at the program, which also served as report card night, the statement said.

The Promise is a recently launched program that intends to provide up to full tuition at a state college for students who live in New Haven and graduate from a public or charter school here. It is funded by Yale University and the Community Foundation for New Haven.
