I am sincerely grateful for the members of the community that voted to approve the 2016-2017 budget for Regional School District #16 last night. The Board of Education has provided the students, staff and educational community with a budget that increases

staffing, resources, and programmatic opportunities for all students. The budget was approved by a vote of 73 to 19. We have created a clear focus on increasing the performance of all our students and providing an educational climate that is safe and conducive to

***The BOE presently has a dress and grooming policy for students.  The policy speaks to students maintaining a high standard for neatness and appropriateness of dress and appearance to maintain a proper and healthful educational atmosphere.  We have received a recent request from a few members of the educational community to implement a uniform policy.  In an effort to appropriately represent the wants of needs of the entire educational community we have a quick survey at each school for the communities of Prospect and Beacon Falls if you so choose to participate and voice your opinion.***
