Winchester has an elected nine-member Board of Education which is required by State Statute and Town Charter to oversee public education.

Regular Board meetings are usually held on the second Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 p.m., except July. Meetings are held at the Town Hall, 338 Main Street, in the Francis P. Hicks Room on the 2nd floor, unless otherwise noted in the press prior to the meeting date. The public is invited to attend all meetings of the Board, however there is no public forum at workshops and personnel matters and contract negotiations are discussed in executive session as permitted by state law. The Board of Education welcomes all visitors interested in addressing the Board at regular Board meetings. In order to accommodate everyone, the Board will refrain from immediately responding to speaker inquiries during the public comment periods. The Board will answer all inquiries at the end of the agenda, if possible; or by future correspondence when the question requires additional research.

The Winchester Board of Education began the process of searching for a new Superintendent last month, guided by Mary Broderick, Senior Search Consultant from CABE (Connecticut Association Boards of Education). We knew it was important to hear from parents, teachers, administrators and residents as to what they valued in a new leader, and as stakeholders, we wanted to hear from you. This profile is a compilation of focus groups, interviewees and survey respondents. The BOE would like to thank all who were able to take the time to participate in this important process as we pave the way for our next chapter.
