Dear Community Members:
On behalf of the Region 15 Board of Education, thank you for supporting public education in Middlebury and Southbury.
The 2013-14 school year promises to be an exciting year with the introduction of full-day kindergarten, using digital learning devices and materials designed to enhance 21st. century learning, and the introduction of new administrators, including a new superintendent of schools.
With concept-based instruction and Common Core State Standards, our curriculum and instructional performance initiatives ensures a very busy summer as professional staff address new professional standards, which will be in place beginning July 1, 2013.
