Jeffrey E. Burt Named Superintendent of Schools in Colchester


Jeffrey E. Burt

COLCHESTER – On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, the Colchester Board of Education unanimously appointed Jeffrey E. Burt its new Superintendent of Schools, effective July 1, 2018.

Mr. Burt currently serves as Assistant Superintendent of the Milford Public Schools, a position he has held for the past three years. Prior to Milford, Jeff served the same role in Vernon. He has also been Curriculum Leader for Social Studies for the Fairfield Public Schools. Jeff has some roots in eastern Connecticut, having begun his administrative work as an assistant principal in the Montville Public Schools.

Jeff holds a Bachelor’s degree in History from the College of Wooster, a Master’s in Teaching from Columbia University Teachers College, and a Sixth Year degree in Administration and Supervision from Sacred Heart University.

Jeff is "looking forward to supporting the outstanding staff and the amazing students of Colchester in their academic and athletic pursuits and their service to the community.”

The Colchester Board of Education served as the Search Committee, supported by Mary Broderick, Search Consultant with the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education. They began the search last Spring, but due to anticipated changes on the Board of Education and uncertainties about state funding, postponed the search until this winter. The position drew an outstanding pool of candidates, thanks in large measure to Colchester’s collaborative and innovative history. The Committee interviewed five excellent semi-finalists and three finalists. Jeffrey Burt emerged as the unanimous choice from this very strong pool.

Board Chair, Brad Bernier, said, “The Board is excited to announce Mr. Burt as the District’s next Educational Leader. Jeff comes to us with a commitment to educational excellence and an excitement towards supporting innovative learning. We believe these traits make him a great match for our staff, students and community.”
