Colchester, a rural southeastern Connecticut community of more than 15,000 residents, is valued for its strong sense of community and support for public education.

The Colchester Board of Education recognizes the importance of establishing effective school-community partnerships to assist in meeting our mission to "ensure the success of each and every student."

Colchester is one of only a small number of communities in which the finance and facility departments serve both the school system and town government; an indicator of our commitment to sharing and maximizing the community's resources.
