The Board of Education is a group of seven elected citizens whose job it is to ensure the highest quality education for the children enrolled in our public schools. The Board oversees educational quality by establishing policies for the school administration to follow.

The Board of Education is responsible to both the State of Connecticut and the Town of Sprague. It must comply with state laws, regulations, and guidelines in its own operations and it must make sure the schools do the same. It is accountable to the community whose taxpayers are the primary sources of school funding and whose interests it represents.

The rewards of serving on the Board are great. Members bring unique experiences and beliefs to the table. What they do can, and does, influence the lives of children.

For example, a parent should:
(1) Contact the childís teacher for a classroom problem, then
(2) Approach the school principal, then
(3) Contact the Superintendent of Schools, and
(4) End with the Board if the matter is not resolved satisfactorily.
For purposes of clarity, it is requested that you put your concerns in writing.
