Update from the Board Chair

October 11, 2022


Greetings from the Colchester Board of Education! The Board would like to take a moment to congratulate Amy Begué on her recent appointment as the new principal of Bacon Academy. Amy has our full support and we believe that she will do an outstanding job for all our Bacon Academy students. Again, congratulations Amy!


The Board would also like to take a moment to offer its thanks to Dr. Charles Hewes who took on the role of Acting Principal at Bacon while continuing to perform his responsibilities as Assistant Superintendent. Dr. Hewes did an outstanding job while seeing our Bacon Academy students through a difficult transition. We owe him a debt of gratitude!


The Board would also like to offer its thanks to Kevin Burke for stepping into the temporary role of Dean of Students at Bacon Academy while the district looks to fill the Assistant Principal vacancy. We know he too will do an outstanding job for our students.


The Board would like to acknowledge the completion of its reorganization of its Business Department. Recently, Sue Urbowicz resigned her position as Payroll/Employee Benefits and Accounts Payable Manager. This provided the Board with the opportunity to restructure and have a self-contained Business Department. This restructuring results in greater efficiency as well as cost savings. Additionally, both Suzie Clark and Alexis Salvagna applied for, were offered, and accepted the two vacant Finance Associate positions. The Board extends its congratulations and welcomes them to our happy family!


Respectfully Submitted,


Alex Oliphant, Chair, Colchester Board of Education
