Check out this amazing video created entirely by Colchester students! Seniors Jaclyn Cline and Courtney Dessormeau traveled all over town asking kids what they love most about going to school in Colchester and then compiled the answers into one fantastic video. You'll love their responses and probably see someone you know!
As we make the final push to the polls, we have one last video to share with you from our Your Vote Matters series. We've titled this video "Be the Difference" because we believe at the end of the day, it could come down to just a handful of ballots. As timing would have it, Superintendent Minor gets to share some exciting news with you in this video. (Spoiler alert: the tax increase is going to be lower than we originally anticipated!)
Besides all of the necessary operational costs of running a school district with over two thousand students, what type of educational opportunities does the school budget provide our students? Why is the education system so different now than it was 20 years ago? Watch Superintendent Amy Minor's next video to find out.
Here's the new episode from our Your Vote Matters series! This week's topic is enrollment. Is it really declining? What would that mean for class sizes and teachers? Find that out and more by watching this 3-minute video hosted by Superintendent Amy Minor. Plus, there's a special treat at the end for music lovers!
Have you met the new superintendent yet? Every week we'll be producing short videos (less than 3 minutes!) hosted by Superintendent Amy Minor. She'll cover a variety of topics surrounding the budget and the impact it has on our students and taxpayers. Our overarching goal of this series is to communicate how important local votes are to our community and subsequently increase voter turnout. Have a question you want answered? Let us know!
The renovation of the Performing Arts Center for Colchester Schools is complete! We invite you watch the video to take a tour of the upgrades and hear students and faculty express their appreciation to the Colchester community for supporting this project.
