Welcome to Ledyard Public Schools

Superintendent Hartling


Thank you for your continued support of Ledyard Public Schools. Our work as a district is guided by the aspirations of our community and the needs of our students as outlined in our Strategic Plan. In the plan we have identified several focus priorities that provide direction as we undertake the budgeting process. These priorities include K-5 mathematics and the continuation of our work with K-5 literacy.

The administrative team has been working for the past several months developing the 2020-2021 Ledyard Public Schools Budget. This highly collaborative process between the Board of Education, Town Council and district schools involves analyzing and preparing a fiscal plan to address the needs and requirements to support quality education. Throughout the process, we remain focused on the needs of our students while being cognizant of the taxpayers who fund our work. We know the community counts on us to be careful stewards of the funds allocated to educate the approximately 2,500 school age children in town.

We hope that you too will take an active role in this process by attending public meetings,
asking questions, and becoming knowledgeable of the needs and priorities addressed in the budget. A Town Public Hearing on the budget is scheduled Monday, April 27, 2020.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the budget development process for their commitment and expertise as we work to present a sound and equitable budget for the 2020-21 school year.
