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!

If you had a whole semester to choose, research, test, and communicate a topic that really interested you, what would you pick?! Check out this 3-minute video to learn more about two CHS Seniors who piloted the new Extended Learning course and got to do just that!


 

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.

Take A Closer Look

The town of Colchester is served by the Colchester School District, which has approximately 2,200 students. In addition to Colchester residents, tuition students are accepted from the Islands (Grand Isle, North Hero, and South Hero) and other districts.

The district operates five separate school buildings and an administrative building. We employ about two hundred teachers and fifteen administrators.

Our school district is renowned for its implementation of differentiated instruction as part of its efforts to provide all students with meaningful and appropriate educational opportunities. Colchester High School graduates attend a wide range of colleges and universities throughout the state and country.

2017 Report to the Community

The first ever CSD Report to the Community was mailed to all Colchester residents in February of 2017. Along with communicating enrollment numbers, assessment scores and alumni information, the report also highlights some of the investments community members contribute towards to keep our district an essential component of the Colchester community. It also outlines a comprehensive overview of the FY'18 budget and how CSD compares to other schools in Chittenden County.
