EASTCONN Adult and Community Programs
EASTCONN is one of Connecticut's six, public, non-profit, Regional Educational Service Centers. EASTCONN was formed when two small, eastern Connecticut public service agencies merged in order to more effectively provide regional, affordable education programs and services to the region's smaller, often under-resourced, schools and communities. Initially, EASTCONN started with a small staff, but quickly grew as it demonstrated its expertise across a range of programs and services, including K-12 professional learning, special education, adult education and early childhood. Today, EASTCONN employs more about 670 staff who work in specialties like early childhood, K-12 student programs (magnet high schools, autism, clinical day treatment, psychological-behavioral consultation, related services, transition programs), adult education, employment and training, teaching and learning, organizational support services, technology solutions, and student transportation, among others.
